A Chick Flick For Men? Interracial Body Swap Film “The Takeover” is A Hit With Male Viewers on YouTube

After spending the past several years in Hollywood, working on shows like the CW’s “Everybody Hates Chris,” VH1’s “The Surreal Life” and “Flavor of Love,” North Carolina native, Shequeta Smith, gets one step closer to conquering Hollywood with her clever new short film, “The Takeover.” The Takeover puts a new spin on the body swap genre of film by swapping the bodies of two best friends of different races.

The movie begins with the two main characters, Tisha and Ashley, discussing the difficulties of dating. Each of them seems to think that the other has it easier. Their nosy but well-meaning barista, Yoshi, overhears their conversation and serves them an espresso that not only tingles their taste buds but ultimately causes them to swap bodies.

Not sure what’s been happening these past few weeks but men have been flocking to this film. Initially, I didn’t think they were gonna like it but they’ve been writing me about how the film has opened their eyes to what’s happening to women when it comes to dating,” says Smith.
