Bruno Mars Gets ‘Unorthodox’ in New ‘Gorilla’ VideoBy: Meaghan Ellis - October 16, 2013
It’s Bruno Mars like you’ve never seen him before! Of course, everyone is familiar with the mellow pop sounds of the Grammy award-winning balladeer. But, this time, he’s back with his sexually-charged exotic record, “Gorilla,” and the video leaves little to nothing to the imagination. One word can sum up the video – hot!
The record was a collaborative work written and created by Mars’ production team the Smeezingtons, Emily Haynie, 808s and Heartbreaks’ producer, Jeff Bhasker, and musician Mark Ronson. Its a sexy soft rock record that compares passionate sex to mating like wild animals, hence the gorilla on the single’s cover art.
“Gorilla” is the fourth single release from Mars’ latest album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,’ which was released on Dec. 7 of last year. According to Neilsen SoundScan, the album was certified platinum by the RIAA after only 12 weeks on the market, selling 1.4 million in the US and over 3 million worldwide.
On Sunday, Mars hit up Twitter Instagram with a 15-second teaser of his new video, “Gorilla.” The short clip alone spoke volumes that promised the video would be a fan-favorite.
Then, Mars took to Twitter again on yesterday to announce the world premiere of the full “Gorilla” video to his 17 million followers.
Mars pushes the envelop of promiscuity throughout the exhilarating 6-minute video with actress and model, Freida Pinto. Pinto portrays Isabella who is a jaw-dropping exotic dancer in a strip club South of the Border. Provocatively captivating, Pinto sends the video up in flames with erotic dances moves, attacking the stripper pole like you’ve never seen her before. Mars is captured performing on stage admiring while Pinto as she dances. The heated chemistry between Mars’ and Pinto is undeniable. The full video was posted on Mars’ Facebook page.
