Party in the U-S-A
Maybe it’s because I listened to the song ad nauseam while writing the concept for this music video. Or maybe it’s because it really is an awesome song, but I’m shamelessly hooked on Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U-S-A.”
And judging by the music video’s almost 250 million hits on YouTube, I know I’m not the only one. The song is (to use industry parlance) “infectious.” In fact, I think I even wrote that in the music video treatment. Something like: “With a keen eye for composition, we’ll create a stylish visual world for this infectious track.” (Of course, I write that or some version of that in almost all of my treatments – even the Enrique Iglesias ones – but I really really mean it this time.)
Director Chris Applebaum drilled another one out of the park, and for the six or seven of you who haven’t seen it, here it is…
And here’s me and Miley on set, in the back of a van.
