Watch Katy Perry’s Delicious ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ Lyric Vid: Bouncing Hamsters, Micro-Burgers & Teeny Spaghetti
2/10/2017 by Gil Kaufman
Katy Perry goes real small in the lyric video for her brand new single, “Chained to the Rhythm”. While the singer doesn’t appear in the clip, she does make sure some delicious micro-meals get prepared for a family of adorable hamsters. There’s really no other way to explain the out-there visual for the bouncy reggae-tinged track co-written by Sia and featuring Skip Marley, grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley.
Directed by Aya Tanimura, the adorbs clip features a hamster emoji bouncing over the lyrics (“so comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble/ So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble”) as a pair of hands delicately cook up micro-burgers and teeny spaghetti for a rodent family. Is KP making a statement about the state of our world with the repeated cuts to hamsters running endlessly on wheels? Who knows?
The thing is damn cute, though.
