The wacky promo for the star's remix of Markus Nikolai's 'Bushes' shows a successful world record attempt for bikini line waxing...

Here’s a peek at yet another quirky video from NORMAN COOK – his remix of MARKUS NIKOLAI’s ‘BUSHES’ – and you’d be right if you think it looks painful!

Released on September 10 through Norman‘s own Southern Fried label, the video shows a successful world record attempt for bikini line waxing.

The track, which features suitably saucy lyrics, was originally released in 1999 and became an underground hit. But then Norman fell in love with it and decided to give it the Fatboy treatment.


However, he didn’t show at the London video shoot himself, which saw 115 people – four of them men – having unwanted hair stripped to take the record for the most number of people to have their bikini lines done in four hours.

A spokesperson laughed: “He didn’t want anything to do with it really, being a married man and a new dad!”
