You can't re-do Christopher Walken. But Flight Facilities have given it red hot go. The Aussie producer duo have thrown down a brand new video for single 'Down to Earth' from their 2014 critically acclaimed debut album, recruiting none other than Sam Rockwell to Walken the Dinosaur through a tired ol' diner.

From the disco ball-flanked kitchen to Rockwell's vicious thumb grooving, Flight Facilities latest video presents the ultimate happy place for jaded, Hawaiian shirt-wearing folk. Rockwell falls asleep at a diner and goes on an epic danceology quest through the kitchen and out to the carpark and back. The whole thing was directed by Rhett Wade Ferrell, who lent his mad skills to FF for 'Sunshine' with Reggie Watts and breakthrough, 15 million views single 'Crave You' with Giselle. Rockwell's strong moves were choreographed by the legendary Vincent Paterson, who's worked with the top tier likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna.

"I really, really liked the song, and it was an honour to work with legendary choreographer Vincent Paterson," says Rockwell. "I’m the kinda guy that likes to shake my tail feather, and so it was a great opportunity to get some new moves, especially to such a sweet beat.”

Here's Flight Facilities' 'Down to Earth' video. See if you can spot the FF cameo.

And here's Christopher Walken in Fatboy Slim's 'Weapon of Choice', because.
