Video: Katy Perry – Chained to the Rhythm

Katy Perry unwraps a futuristic music video for her latest single ‘Chained to the Rhythm.’ In the clip, the pop superstar invites viewers to her space age fun park as she channels fashion from Judy Jetson of The Jetsons. The Matthew Cullen-directed visual opens with Perry walking through the gates of the park (filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California), where cotton candy is served in portions the size of giant umbrellas.

Like her 2017 Grammy Awards performance of the song, the video has many not-so-subtle hints at Perry’s feelings about the current political climate in the nation. The first taste is a ride called “The Great American Dream Drop,” in which a loving couple nestles into a tiny house that gets swung around in the air and then violently plunged toward the ground. The dystopian park also has such other not-so-fun attractions as flaming glasses of blue “Inferno H2O,” a tainted liquid that makes patrons belch fire and a hamster wheel attractions that is impossible to keep up with.

Towards the end, Perry is swept up in a dance routine after Skip Marley jumps out of a 3D movie to spit his cameo, which leads to the final shot: her worried face staring into the camera in a moment of fear-filled awakening.
