In February, we showed you “Dunkin Love,”  Adrian Anchondo’s hilarious homage to Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love”(and Dunkin Donuts). In the spirit of April Fool’s Day, we’re excited to premiere ”In-N-Out Mission” Anchondo’s follow-up paying homage to Bey’s “Partition” and the glory of In-N-Out Burger.

This time around,  Anchondo and collaborator Reggie White have brought along some new faces like Mike Delaney, Sarah Coykendall, San Francisco queen Dulce de Leche, and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Honey Mahogany for the ride!

Screen shot 2014-03-31 at 7.31.47 PM“They’re both sexy, talented, and funny. Who wouldn’t want to play with these boys?” says Mahogany. “I thought their last video was brilliantly executed. I’d never been motivated to produce a parody video of my own, so when Adrian approached me about filming a sequel to ‘Dunkin Love,’ I told him I had to think about it—And by that I mean I cleared my schedule! I was stoked!”

Sexy and fun, “In-N-Out Mission” has got everything from milkshake slurping and underwear shots to some animal style choreography. But what made Anchondo switch out donuts for burgers?

“Anyone that knows me knows of my love affair with In-N-Out Burger,” he says. “I was born in Cali but raised on the East Coast, where I was deprived for years of the best fast-food burger in the world.  One year, one of my best friends flew from California for Christmas and she kept an In-N-Out Burger and fries in a cooler for me as a gift. It was one of the sweetest things anyone has ever done for me. When we did ‘Dunkin Love,’ I focused on the fact that it was an East Coast food that was needed on the West Coast, so it was only fitting that we would do the opposite for the sequel.”

Meanwhile, Honey is excited to show off a side of herself that wasn’t seen on Drag Race. Specifically, her backside. “For one thing: THERE ARE NO CAFTANS! I definitely show my ass in this video,” she said.  “Some people might say that I ‘showed my ass’ on Season 5, but this time I’m talking literally… Cakes.”

ADRIAN ANCHONDO SPOOFS BEYONCE, PRAISES DONUTS WITH “DUNKIN LOVE”

Dunkin

From Kanye and Diplo to Joachim Garraud, everyone wants to put their spin on Beyonce’s hit single “Drunk In Love.” But of all the remixes and reinventions we’ve heard, none have been as delicious as “Dunkin Love,” a parody written by hunky L.A. actor Adrian Anchondo.

And we mean “delicious” literally: “Dunkin Love” celebrates the news that Dunkin Donuts is expanding to the West Coast.

With friend Reggie White playing ‘Yonce to his Jay-Z, and lines like “She’s servin’ on that counter, servin’ servin’ all them, old fashions be servin’ all this powdered donut, it’s so good good,” Anchondo might have a hit on his hands—or at least a future as a jingle writer.

“When the Beyonce visual album came out, we did what any self-respecting gays would do–we had a viewing party,” Anchondo told NewNowNext. “Reggie came over and we basically screamed, cried, fondled, laughed and threw shade for an hour or so.”

Later, while re-listening to “Drunk in Love,” Anchondo heard about Dunkin’ Donuts’ plan to dominate Southern California by 2015.  ”I thought, ‘why not do a video parody?’ It fits with the song.”

When it came to shooting the video, though, Anchondo had to ask his partner’s family in Pennsylvania and Florida to send the actual Dunkin Donuts boxes—the chain hasn’t opened up in his neighborhood just yet. He bought the dress, the wig (“I had to cut and style it myself, so luckily her hair is messy in the video.”) and all the donuts before heading out to a freezing San Francisco beach with Reggie. “I can’t believe how committed Reggie was!” he says, pointing out that you can see White’s teeth chattering from the freezing water.

So what is Anchondo’s goal with “Dunkin’ Love”? “We hope Beyonce and Dunkin Donuts will see it and share it,” he says, humbly. “Who knows? Maybe we will get a coupon or something.”
