Dave Franco apologized to the dancers in Xavier’s “Imma Live Forever” music video from The Afterparty, the new murder mystery series on Apple TV+.

Dave Franco apologizes to the dancers in his character’s music video from The Afterparty. The new murder mystery series on Apple TV+ is created and directed by Christopher Miller, known as one half of the filmmaking and producing duo that also includes Phil Lord. Their past credits include animated films Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The Lego Movie, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, while their live-action resume includes 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street, and the upcoming Cocaine Bear.

Miller has ventured off on his own for The Afterparty, though Lord is still listed as a producer. The series is set at a high school reunion where Franco’s pop star, Xavier, turns up dead. Each episode then follows a different character’s perspective of what happened that night. Other than Franco, The Afterparty’s cast includes Tiffany Haddish, Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Ike Barinholtz, Ben Schwartz, Ilana Glazer, and Jamie Demetriou. Channing Tatum and Will Forte guest star as themselves, who knew Franco’s fictional pop star in-universe.

During a recent appearance on The Lates Show with James Corden, Franco recalled what it was like filming the music video for The Afterparty. The actor has an intense fear of dancing and singing in public, though he was able to overcome it for the show. Franco attributes this to the talented collaborators he was surrounded by. Realizing the dancers in the video had previously worked with Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson, Franco apologized to them the first day on set for being saddled with him. Read what he had to say below:

The dancers in that video, they literally danced with Justin Bieber, some of had danced with Michael Jackson. I remember being there at the beginning of the day and turning to them and just being like, “I am so sorry your life has led to this.”

The Afterparty premiered on January 28 on Apple TV+ and, shortly after, Xavier’s music video “Imma Live Forever” was released online for all to enjoy. The video takes place at his own funeral and retroactively pokes fun at the character’s death, which serves as the inciting incident for the show. Surely, much more will be learned about Franco’s pop star as the series continues and Detective Danner (Haddish) investigates the circumstances surrounding his death.

The whodunnit genre has seen a bit of a resurgence recently with Knives Out, Only Murders in the Building, and now The Afterparty. Though the new trend appears to be blending murder mystery with other subgenres, as Only Murders is just as much a comedy as it is a mystery. The Afterparty takes it one step further, as each episode takes on a different genre depending on the POV character’s personality, starting with romantic comedy, action, and musical, with more to come in future episodes. New episodes of The Afterparty stream every Friday on Apple TV+.
