Carly Rae Jepsen + emoijs + choose your own adventure = this magical video
So, continuing her run as an amazing music video make, Carly Rae Jepsen just wowed us with the new video for “Run Away With Me.” Yes, we know she already released an official video for the song, but this new version has a seriously unique twist — you decide what happens next!
Yep, you read that right: In Carly’s newest video, which is an update to the first video for the song that was released in July, you determine what Carly does. Using your phone and emojis, you pick her journey and where the music video goes next. It’s totally interactive and probably one of the coolest videos we’ve seen all year/ever.
So how does it work exactly? Well, in the video the Canadian singer is seen running around from Paris to Tokyo, periodically holding a guy’s hand (running away with him, duh), but this time she doesn’t do it alone. Throughout the video, text messages pop up. It’s like Carly is texting you, her new BFF, and you get to make decisions for her using your emojis on your cell.
For example, when Carly asks if you picked out a birthday gift for her yet, you can text a hat emoji of your fave color and then she goes to that store and tries it on. Pretty cool right? There are a ton of interactive choices and the song is super catchy, so it’s definitely a win-win.
If you ever get bored with this new video (you won’t, trust us), you can just continue to freak out over the fact that Carly is going to play Frenchy in the upcoming TV musical Grease on FOX. We are still seriously geeking out over this news!
Plus, the “Call Me Maybe” singer is also currently on tour, so you can go see her live, like right now. Could this day get any better? The answer: No, duh. PS: If you can’t get enough of Carly’s interactive fun, the 29-year-old singer has a make your own photo booth on her website, which we may or may not have already played around with. It’s addictive, so be warned. Way to win the Internet, Carly.
