What could be better than a new Pink music video?
One that also features Channing Tatum, of course!
Pink (whose birth name is Alecia Moore) just released a brand new video for the second single off of her 2017 album “Beautiful Trauma.”
The song, also titled “Beautiful Trauma,” gets a warped, candy-colored 1950s housewife treatment in the video—complete with Channing Tatum as the bored husband to Pink’s frustrated housewife.
Tatum’s Got Moves
And wait till you see the adorable dance routine Pink and Tatum do when the chorus hits!
We haven’t seen Tatum dance since “Magic Mike XXL,” except in a cute social media post that showed him boogie-ing with a gas station employee in North Carolina (below).
Don’t forget the fact that he came to fame (along with wife Jenna Dewan Tatum) in the early 2000s teen dance classic film “Step Up.”
It’s good to see he can still break it on down. Pink is more known for her amazing in-concert acrobatics than her dance skills, but she totally holds her own, of course.
Yeah… we did that. Bandaloop. They are the most incredible group of daring performers. They put me to shame, but still opened up their art form to me. THANKYOU to everyone that helped us to make this dream happen. THANKYOU to the American Music Awards for taking a chance with me. It was something none of us had ever imagined could be possible. It was the scariest thing I have ever done, and we did it all in five days. Start to finish. Hell yeah. I love you bandaloop. ❤
No Ordinary 1950s Housewife
The video goes on to show some gender-bending fun, with Tatum dressing up in stereotypically female clothes and Pink donning a mid-century style suit.
Following that, there’s a sequence where Pink and Tatum get drunk on martinis (so ’50s!), which leads to some, well, adult role-playing fun.
The whole video is pretty tongue-in-cheek, in fact. It’s a little bit subversive, a little bit joke-y, a little bit over the top.
It totally fits Pink, who is well-known for her honest perspective on everything, including her 11-year marriage to Carey Hart.
And ultimately the “bored housewife” trope gets totally turned on its head by the end of the song. Watch it and you’ll see!
Disclaimer: Pink does sing a few curse words (namely the one that begins with “f”) in the video below, and it also features some adult themes. They’re suitable-for-work but, still, proceed with caution if you’re sensitive to this kind of thing or are watching with a kiddo nearby.
And in case you missed it, you have to check out Pink’s “Carpool Karaoke” episode with James Corden. It’s epic!
If you can’t get enough Pink, check out her American Music Awards performance with Kelly Clarkson. They opened the show with the R.E.M. classic “Everybody Hurts.”
