Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto is a long way from Dev Patel’s warm embrace in Bruno Mars’s new music video. In the six-minute video, which is for Bruno’s single “Gorilla,” Freida takes a turn on the pole as a stripper in a Spanish club known as La Jungla.
Despite the name of Bruno’s song, there are no wild animals in “Gorilla,” just mean-spirited strippers jealous of the new girl, Isabella (aka Freida). As one red-lipped, green-eyed chica tells another at the start of the video, “If this new girl thinks she can come in here and take away from my business, wait till I tell the boss who she’s sleeping with.”
Spoiler: It’s Bruno, the band leader at La Jungla, who plays his steamy pop song “Gorilla” while his secret lover shows the other girls a few new moves. In between shots of impressive flexibility, we see Bruno and Freida making love like gorillas in the back of a car.
As if that’s not hot enough, Freida decides to add a little fire. Grabbing Bruno’s guitar (after she licks it), Isabella the rogue stripper pours tequila all over the dollar bill-covered stage and lights a match. Cue sprinklers, cue wet bikini shots, cue the showers we all need after watching this NSFW video.
