Are you stuck inside on this nasty, hurricane-y day? Got a working internet connection? Need a pick-me-up in the form of some broadly appealing bubblegum pop? Very, very tired of “Call Me Maybe”? Look no further than this spanking new video from Carly Rae Jepsen, “This Kiss,” which is just as fun as the one for “Call Me Maybe” if slightly less viral. (At least so far.)
In it, Jepsen goes to what looks like a Halloween warehouse party, although it’s hard to tell if she’s wearing a costume or just her usual brightly colored retro ’80s attire. There are games of suck and blow, a hot, grungy love interest, an old timey photobooth, and pretty much everything you fantasized you’d find in New York when you were a young person plotting your escape from the ‘burbs. She frolics, sings sweet-as-pie hooks, and eventually, possibly (maybe?) cheats on her boyfriend with the hot grungy guy. It’s naughty (but still sweet) Carly like you’ve never seen her before. Try not to get a cavity.
