A couple of weeks back, rising pop star PETRA dropped her excellent new single “Luckboy.” Today she’s following it up with a whimsical music video that takes on the struggles of dating in a charming fashion. Just like how PETRA commands her own narrative on the track, throughout the video she remains firmly in control. The concept takes its inspiration from 70s dating shows, which gives PETRA plenty of room to play around with various male stereotypes, all while retaining her cool with ease.
PETRA shared this statement about the concept of the video:
“..To be honest, there’s nothing heavy about it [the video] besides the 5lb weights I used in the gym scene! It’s meant to be a whimsical, weird and silly music video, playing on the idea of the games most guys play while dating. I came up with the concept with my director, Carlos Vasquez. We thought it’d be kind of funny to do a video where I go on a series of dates in an almost dating-show style set up and explore four main dating stereotypes….I go on each of these dates to only find myself so much better of without them in the end. Miguel Vasquez played all four roles and did a stellar job at really showing off the true colors of each guy. Personally, I wanted one actor to play all four roles because I wanted to dig into the idea that ‘all guys are the same, just disguised in sheep’s clothing’ ”
