Ed Sheeran Is Learning To ‘Booty Clap’ For His ‘Thinking Out Loud’ Video

So far he's got the squatting part down.

On Sunday night, Ed Sheeran won Best Male Video for “Sing” at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, although he’s pretty sure that it isn’t one of his best visuals to date. No worries though, because he’s learning some new tricks for an upcoming video. And by “some tricks,” I mean that he’s learning to booty clap.

Shortly before he accepted the moonman for “Sing,” Ed strolled the VMA red carpet with video director Emil Nava, and explained why he was a bit surprised to receive that nomination.

“We actually we had about 15 different plans for it originally, and the last idea was an amalgamation of all of them,” he told MTV News. “We’ve made around seven or eight videos together and it’s a good video, but I wouldn’t say it’s one of our best.”

So what’s in store next? He’s already banked a video for “Don’t” and then he’s got something special in store for “Thinking Out Loud.”

“I’m learning how to booty clap,” Ed revealed, admitting he still has a lot of work to do. “[So far] I can squat and that’s about it.”

His director sounded pretty sure that he could figure out the rest though. “He’s got a dancer going on tour with him everyday, teaching him how to booty clap.”
