New Lily Allen Video – “Smile” (Simlish Version)

What do Pussycat Dolls, Depeche Mode, Black Eyed Peas and Lily Allen have in common? That’s right, they’ve all recorded a song in Simlish. You know, the native language used by characters in The Sims? (It was news to us, too.) Electronic Arts has announced a contest for which Sims players are encouraged to record their own Simlish “Smile” at singshot.com. Lily Allen will pick the winner, who will receive a free videogame or something.

Says Lily in a press release: “The silly language and whimsy of The Sims games are a perfect fit for the song. I was laughing the entire time!” Uh huh.
