Partially impressed by the 2009 basic Jennifer’s Physique, the video options a number of callbacks to the movie, together with the spooky lake scene and a clip of Rodrigo setting fireplace to her ex’s bed room curtains. The emotional influence of seeing Rodrigo leap up and down within the flooded room with a smile on her face whereas the fireplace grew was the 2021 equal of watching Taylor Swift take a golf membership to her ex’s classic automotive within the “Clean Area” video. As thrilling because it was to see the scene play out, there may be one key element that we did not know till the discharge of the behind-the-scenes video on June 7: that fireside wasn’t a particular impact.
Within the video, Rodrigo may be seen standing within the flooded room as a pyrotechnician units the curtains ablaze and walks out of the shot, which needed to be filmed within the span of some minutes to keep away from any accidents from the smoke or crumbling set. With fireplace extinguishers and a hose readily available to place out the flames, fortunately, nobody was in any hazard. However realizing that the fireplace burning behind Rodrigo through the climax of the video is 100-percent actual provides an additional “wow” issue to the complete “Good 4 U” storyline. “I simply had essentially the most enjoyable day ever,” Rodrigo says. “We flooded a room and set it on fireplace and it was the dopest sh*t I’ve actually ever accomplished.” See precisely how the scene was filmed above.
