Filmed in Budapest, the video shows Perry in the middle of an enormous dance party in one of the city’s squares, and young people struggling with their identities — a cancer patient in a hospital, an overweight girl, a gay man. These characters are ultimately freed as fireworks rocket from their chests. Fireworks are seen shooting from Perry’s chest as well, making a poetic connection back to the whipped cream that jetted from her bra in the “California Gurls” clip.
