'Pitch Perfect 2' boys get patriotic for Fourth of July

Pitch Perfect 2 America The Beautiful

This Fourth of July, Elizabeth Banks is celebrating aca-America.

The director of Pitch Perfect 2 posted a video to her Facebook page of Skylar Astin and Ben Platt, who play Jesse and Benji in the movies, singing “America the Beautiful.”

The pair, dressed in maroon blazers–the signature for the Treblemakers, Barden University’s all-male a cappella group and rival to the Bellas–sing with an American flag behind them. Nothing says sings America quite like these two.

The video ends with a message: “Happy Fourth of July from Pitch Perfect 2.”

Would the Bellas like to challenge, perhaps bringing back “Party in the USA” as seen in the first flick? Keep your eyes aca-peeled. For now:
