Hot people making out with other hot people is a time-honored music video tradition — from Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith‘s “Amazing” to Brett Eldredge’s “Beat of the Music,” there’s no better way to accompany a song than with a good, sweaty romp. It’s something Keith Urban takes to heart in his new video for “Somewhere in My Car,” released today, which features two models stripping off each other’s clothes in — where else? — a car. Urban tells the story while shredding away on the guitar, choosing to narrate the action in lyric rather than participate.
It’s a pretty racy event — in one scene, it’s almost possible to see one of (two of, actually) model Jehane Paris’ assets, and partner Rodrigo Calazans spends plenty of time showing off his rain-soaked bare chest. The video is a pretty literal illustration of “Somewhere in My Car,” with a man tearfully reminiscing about a night with a former lover filled with lots of hard breathing, steamy glass and wandering hands.
Urban, who recently celebrated his 16th Number One hit with “We Were Us” and four CMA nominations, is, of course, happily married to Nicole Kidman, a woman whom he told Rolling Stone County is pretty much his soulmate.
“I have a wife who is just from another planet. She is so celestial. I say that I was born into her. That is the best way I can describe how I feel about her and us,” he said. “It means that I felt like I was just sitting dormant, and she came along and I came to life. I was born into her, so who I am now was waiting the whole time.”
But that doesn’t mean that Urban hasn’t experienced a backseat make-out session himself. He co-wrote the song and has been known to draw from personal experience in the writing process. Kidman also once told Harper’s Bazaar that she credits Urban with “opening me up to trying things, my sexuality.” New things, perhaps, somewhere in a car?
