Day Shift: Jamie Foxx releases a music video for “Mowing Down Vamps” song

Last Friday, Netflix released a fun vampire slayer action flick called Day Shift (you can read our 7/10 review HERE)… and if you watched the movie, you may have noticed that it had a goofy end credits song called “Mowing Down Vamps”, which built a tune around a line spoken by the character played by Dave Franco (The Disaster Artist). The song around Franco’s line was performed by The BSB Boys (J Young MDK and Sam Pounds) alongside the film’s star Jamie Foxx (Spider-Man: No Way Home) – and now Foxx has released a video for the song.

The music video, directed by Taylor Chien, features Foxx, Franco, some vampire fights, and a good dose of silliness. You can check it out at the bottom of this article.

Day Shift marks the feature directorial debut of stunt coordinator and second unit director J.J. Perry. It was also the first produced screenplay for Tyler Tice, whose script received some polishing from Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3Army of the Dead). The story centers on Foxx’s character Bud,

a hard-working, blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted daughter. His mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income, hunting and killing vampires as part of an international union of vampire hunters.

Foxx and Franco are joined in the cast by Snoop Dogg (Bones), Scott Adkins (Accident Man), Meagan Good (Monster Hunter), Karla Souza (How to Get Away with Murder), Eric Lange (Narcos), Zion Broadnax (Holly Day), Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Society), Oliver Masucci (The Swarm), Steve Howey (Shameless), and C.S. Lee (Dexter).

John Wick franchise director Chad Stahelski produced Day Shift with Jason Spitz for 87Eleven Entertainment, alongside Shaun Redick and Yvette Yates Redick of Impossible Dream Entertainment. Foxx, Datari Turner, and Peter Baxter are executive producers.
