Katy Perry went all-in on the jungle cat theme for her “Roar” video, which premiered today (September 5). The playful, campy clip — presented in “Junglescope” — finds the star the stunned survivor of a plane crash on a tropical island that looks to be a leftover set from Swiss Family Robinson. At first, KP is spooked by all the wild animals, but soon enough (as you can probably guess), she roars and rightfully takes her throne as Queen of the Jungle.
It’s like Tarzan meets The Flintstones, and of course it continues her recent obsession with animal prints. Check it out up top.
Perry’s triumphant “Roar” visual comes just days after the smash surpassed “Blurred Lines” for the top spot on the Hot 100 (making it KP’s eighth #1 hit), so that tiger she eventually faces down in the video is a perfect analogy for her late summer chart victory.
