Brad Paisley Asked Fans to Film Their Breakups for ‘Bucked Off’ Video, and the Result Is Hilarious
The lighthearted breakup song's resulting video mixes clips from various breakups, as well as rodeo footage and a portion filmed during Paisley's free pop-up show in December at Tootsies Orchid Lounge in downtown Nashville.
The nearly five-minute clip begins with a woman clearly breaking up with her man. As he slyly films the moment, she's enraged, demanding, "Are you filming this right now? Why are you filming this right now?"
Her soon-to-be ex confesses that he is, in fact, filming the breakup because "Brad Paisley told me to." As she lunges for the camera, he is seen smiling and simply responds, "Got it!"
The video then launches into Paisley's performance at Tootsies to thousands of his adoring fans, many of whom line the streets in hopes for a glimpse of the country star. Other humorous breakups are included in the clip, some over text, some in person and one in the midst of Paisley's free concert. In another situation, a woman is seen pouring queso all over her ex, while another throws coffee at her man's face. While it's not clear if these are all real-life breakups, they're still very funny.
"This ain’t my first rodeo / Someone’s gonna get hurt / Whenever someone says we need to talk / It feels like there’s a number / Pinned on to the back of my shirt / ‘Cause this is where the cowboy gets bucked off / Yeah, this is where the cowboy gets bucked off," Paisley sings at the chorus.
Paisley teamed with Chris DuBois and Kelly Lovelace to write "Bucked Off." Jeff Venable directed the music video, which Ben Skipworth produced.
