It’s Katy Perry, filmed in Junglescope!
Although Katy Perry’s show-closing VMA performance of “Roar” totally set us up to expect a “Rocky”-inspired look and feel to the lead Prism single’s video, last week’s teaser clip — not to mention that old Hollywood-style movie poster mock-up — presented a drastically different “Jane of the Jungle” angle. And now that she’s released the video, we see that Katy’s gone full-on queen of the jungle in the clip for “Roar.”
And, duh, we’re so into it. If anything, Katy has proven that she can werq the EFF out of a theme. “California Gurls”’ wipped-cream fembot Candyland fantasy? “Wide Awake”’s nightmarish hedge maze fairy tale? The intergalactic contact-making in “E.T.”? Ring, ring! Psssssst! Hey, Katy Perry, it’s for you!
YOU’RE WONDERFUL. Thankfully, “Roar” does not disappoint, as Katy Perry not only serves up some top-shelf, Jane of the Jungle realness, but clues us in to some must-know wilderness survival tips!
Watch Katy Perry’s “Roar” video after the jump.
1.) DON’T RELY ON DOUCHEBAGS: Not to get all Liz Lemon on ya, but if your man’s more obsessed with taking selfies than rescuing you from a plane crash — that’s a dealbreakah, ladies!
2.) IF YOU SEE A TIGER, RUN: Feel free not to share this tip with said d-bag.
3.) IF COVERED IN SPIDERS, DON’T RUN: Just be a ham! Spiders hate broad comedy.
4.) ELEPHANTS MAKE TERRIBLE SHOWER BUDDIES: C’mon, man! BE COOL.
5.) HYGIENE: Don’t forget to brush! (Yourself and others.)
6.) DON’T GET TOO ATTACHED TO YOUR ANIMAL FRIENDS: You never know when you might need a cute new leopard-skin top.
7.) SAME GOES FOR SHOES: Sorry, babies, mama needs a new spear. I wiiiiill remember yoooooou…
8.) USE YOUR WORDS: J/K, use your super haute new D.I.Y. spear. Eat tiger sliders. Be happy.
9.) ADDRESS YOUR QUEENDOM: Once you’ve conquered the island’s creatures, declare your sovereignty in a manner befitting of a queen like Katy. We recommend a royal march-style rendition of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor,” but whatever.
10.) IF YOU START YELLING AT SOMEONE NAMED “JACOB”: Congratulations, you’ve officially reached the point of no return! Welcome to the island, crazy.
