If you like to dance, and we know you do, you’ll be soon dancing for high scores to the dance remix of “30 Lives,” which will be featured in a whole bunch of upcoming releases of the video game DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION. That’s not all!! Your feet will be enjoying themselves grooving along while your eyes take in the wonder that is the “30 Lives” music video, which will also be included in the game!

If you haven’t seen the video yet (what’s wrong with you?), head over to and watch. Or, if you are a traditionalist, you can view it on any of the many places it’s airing: “120 Minutes” on MTV Latin America, “The Wedge” on MuchMusic, Fuse On Demand, and many, many other regional, national, and international stations. The video is also airing in a number of stores including: Foot Locker (1500 locations), Champs Sports (550 locations), Footaction (375 locations) Harley-Davidson (300 dealerships), 55 Against All Odds clothing Stores, 5 Against All Odds for Women stores in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania, and a chain of tattoo parlors in NYC. It was featured on a number of web sites including a front-page feature on Blender as the “breakout video.” Watch it over and over again!!!!
