It has been heavily reported that Jared Leto went full method when it came to becoming The Joker in Suicide Squad. Even sending extremely odd and at times gross gifts to his co-stars including Will Smith and Margot Robbie. It turns out that gift giving trend continued when it came to those working on the Suicide Squad soundtrack.
This summer Rick Ross and Skrillex teamed up for the Suicide Squad soundtrack and created the hit “Purple Lamborghini.” The music video featured none other than Jared Leto as the Joker.
Skrillex recently spoke with Complex and said that he received the “biggest dildo” along with a bunch of other odd items in a box from Leto. When asked about how he responded to the gift, Skrillex simply said, “Thank you.”
When Skrillex was working on the music video, the original concept didn’t feature Jared Leto. Since the two are friends, Skrillex called up Leto and asked him to join the project.
“[They] wanted to do a music video using me and footage [of Suicide Squad]. I was like, ‘No, I don’t want to do one of those.’ So I called Jared personally, and I really had to persuade him [to join].
He’s a really good friend of mine, but for him, giving me that Joker character is not an easy thing. He really went out of his way to be a part of that video. And getting Rick Ross in it—the timing was so last minute. Everything came together at the last minute. The director, the treatment, everything.”
Watch the video for “Purple Lamborghini” here:
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne, Suicide Squad will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 13th.
