At the risk of losing readership (1 out of 1), I have to comment on this video.
Just so you know, I am not a Bielieber. I’ve never bought any of his music and I have passively listened to my friends’ hate rants on the subject. But I was curious when I saw that Nicki was featured on this song so I watched the video.
From a cinematographic point of view, I loved it. The use of an underwater/motion-stabilizer cam with the fabulous overhead shots of synchronized swimming in the pool and the long shots made me think of a modern-day touch of Busby Berkeley.
The song is kind of cute too. Please don’t hate me. I just am not scared of owing up to my likes and this is one of them.
Bieber is no Busby Berkley in terms of choreography nor direction but I do like the fact that someone is doing synchronized swimming in their videos…even if it’s the Bieber.
Did anyone else freak out when Ruby Keeler started singing?
