It's space day, space day, gotta get down on space day.

J-Lo's new song "Feel the Light," written for the Home* soundtrack, doesn't necessarily sound like Rebecca Black. But hoo-boy, does the video ever look like a green screen job straight out of the Ark Music Factory (if you're not familiar, that's the company that wrote "Friday" and recorded the video for Black). While I was watching this, I kept expecting Patrice Wilson to show up and lay down some of his signature tepid rhymes. (You might remember from Black's song: "Fast lanes, switchin' lanes / Wit' a car up on my side / Woo!")

Before you try to chide me, I know — this is song for a children's movie. The music video is going to look a little silly. But the J Lo visuals are cheesy, and the film clips feel tonally incorrect for the song. Also, I'm not one to shy away from nudity, but if this video looks so silly because it's for kids, why is Lopez wearing a skintight bodysuit that has a see-through cleavage panel?

Anyway, if you would like to feel extra baffled, skip ahead to 2:44 when she dances with an entire CGI crew.

* I like to imagine that it's actually the soundtrack to the X-Files episode "Home," which centered around an inbred group of brothers that kept their mother under a bed.
