The four-and-a-half-minute video was directed by Mark's childhood BFF and fellow DWTS Season 18 pro finalist Derek Hough. It was choreographed by Misha Gabriel of Step Up Revolution, and — as you can see in the video — it features the amazing So You Think You Can Dance alum/new DWTS pro Witney Carson.
Mark first talked about “Get My Name” on April 24, the day after they shot this video at The Sayers Club in L.A. He said the song is about a guy who's kind of fed up with looking for love, but then he meets this girl and feels an instant connection with her. He doesn't want a relationship, but he's so into her that he knows she's going to get his name.
Mark said the video features 12 dancers and an eight-piece band, and he compared it to a mini movie. He added that it would "blow your mind” and you can see why. It’s sexy and funky and makes you wish you could be right there in the club with them. And that song! It’s so catchy, it’ll be in your head for the next week, at least.
Check it out below. Congrats, Mark! And great job, Derek, Witney, and company!
