NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Big Freedia wants everyone in town to “do the Tony” in honor of New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis. Or, more accurately, Freedia wants everyone to dance like Davis’ robotic assistant.
Davis landed a look-alike fictional “robotic assistant” through a Red Bull marketing campaign, and the Queen of Bounce was immediately impressed by the robot’s dance moves.
In a new video for “The Tony,” Freedia, huge curlers dangling from her hair, can’t get enough of Tony the robot.
“I have to do something with this,” she said. “We gonna have everybody doing the Tony. The Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony. You feel me?”
Check out Freedia’s video below, featuring people across New Orleans, the real Anthony Davis, and the robot Anthony Davis all doing “the Tony.”
