The other day, 5 Seconds Of Summer released their music video for "Good Girls." I personally was very curious about this video because it is actually my favorite off of their album. Its catchy, fun and very sexual, so honestly, I expected the video to go along with that. Before I go on, if you haven't seen the video yet, I recommend watching it here before reading on. It does contain some spoilers, as this is a review.
It sort of did go along with that, but not quite. The video takes place in what they called a "reform school" for bad girls. First, let me just say, that sounds like the opening to some porn video involving a school girl and a prinicipal. Am I the only one who thought that? I can't be alone in that.
Second, why do so many videos not go along with the songs? This sort of does, I admit, but the song actually basically writes its own music video. Why not take your lyrics and apply that idea to a video? If you know the song, then you know what its about. if you don't know the song -why are you reading this review? I don't know, but just in case there is someone reading this just for the hell of it, I'll explain the song briefly.
The song is about a girl, it is assumable that she is or was a classmate of one of the boys in 5SOS, who claims to be your stereotypical "good girl", but really isn't. She states that "Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught", and really is constantly with her boyfriend, though nobody knows.
Instead of depicting a high school student doing this, its grown women in what is basically a prison. It just did not make sense to me. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Seeing as I didn't have the budget to actually make a music video, nor did I have access to the band to star in it, I decided I just might have to write my own video idea for this song. Since I don't actually have access to the band to star in this video, nor do I have the budget to throw this together properly, you'll just have to read it, if you're actually interested. If you are interested, be on the look out for that, because it will be coming soon.
Meanwhile, what do you think of the video? Do you like the direction they went with it, or not really? Would you have done it differently? Let me know!
