In a stunning homage to one or none of the following…
- Alice and Dana in the opening credits of The L Word‘s second and third seasons
- Alice and Tasha in the opening credits of The L Word‘s fourth, fifth and sixth seasons
- Kim and Kanye in “Bound 2”
- Bladerunner 2049
- Aerosmith’s “Amazin” music video
- A general fantasy of riding a motorcycle through a screensaver with Bella Thorne
…Fletcher today dropped the video for “Becky’s So Hot,” her controversial breakup anthem that launched a flurry of negative and positive feedback mere weeks ago, as it was a direct reference to Fletcher’s ex-girlfriend Shannon Beveridge’s new girlfriend Becky, which some are finding funny (and very specific to queer people, as we alone must grapple with the difficult possibility of being attracted to your ex’s new partner) and others are finding kinda creepy.
The aesthetics of the video, directed by Millicent Hailes, are deliberately over-the top and a lot fun and also quite sexual. In a subtle or perhaps imagined (by me) homage to Britney Spears’ “Touch of Your Hand,” the video opens with Fletcher’s freshly manicured nails traveling beneath her tights. We then transition into Fletcher’s fantasy — Fletcher on a rotating stone platform in front of a Blue Sky With Moon, Fletcher in a triangle of fire in a Pastel Desert Sunset, Fletcher riding a motorcycle through a Sexy Urban Cityscape and eventually, Fletcher making out WITH TONGUE with Bella Thorne and also someone else in a dark room.
I am confident this song will remain stuck in my head for the remainder of the day, if not the remainder of my life! In conclusion:
One million percent inspired by Aerosmith’s “Amazing” video, the lesser-known entry in the Alicia Silverstone trilogy! Motorcycle, virtual reality… likely less virtual ejaculation due to water bottle spillage, but I’m at work so I can’t study the video too closely. Will investigate further later. <3
Ooo I will add this to the list of possibilities !! That trilogy changed my life
This music video is very relevant to me personally because once upon a time I got to go to Bella Thorne’s over-the-top quince (on a studio lot in Los Angeles, sponsored by Hallmark) because my ex-girlfriend’s new girlfriend was on the Disney Channel and knew BT, and the three of us went together. There was an iykyk vibe to the whole thing.
I got curious & dialed that number shown at the end & all I got was a busy signal. I thought it might lead to some advert for the singer like these usually do.
Does anyone know what film or show the picture at the end is from (with Leisha Hailey)?
It’s from the opening credits of The L Word
My fave thing about this song and the way my friends have responded is that we’re split between “this is unhinged (derogatory)” and “this is unhinged (legendary)” but we all conclude that the song is a bop.
(Personally I fall into the derogatory camp because of some of the more overtly sexual lyrics about Becky coupled with the weird implication that Fletcher’s getting off thinking of her in this video? It must be fucking horrible to hear 1000s of people singing about wanting to taste you when you didn’t choose to be a public figure, imo)
Actually, motorcycle part really does remind me of Britney Spears’ video for Toxic.
I like this video clip. It reminds me of an animated explainer video, which is very difficult to create. But in spite of this, there are a lot of projects that are ordered by various people from specialists. The question is, what is the purpose of the video? It inspires me to make my own videos, but if you’ve ever tried to make a video yourself, you know how hard it is. How much time, effort and money it takes. That’s why I think the best option would be to order such short videos from professionals.
