VRL Music Choice: Lost in Japan or in Translation
Shawn Mendes’ “Lost in Japan” has a video and you might have seen something like it before…
The “In My Blood” singer dropped the video for his track “Lost in Japan” and it follows the Sofia Coppola plot for Lost in Translation… How did we not see that one coming considering the name and lyrics!
Shawn is in the Far East, filming a commercial for a whiskey, just like Bill Murray did, when he meets a stranger whom he can’t get off his mind. The most iconic scenes in the movie are done to perfection, bathrobe and all. Shawn then meets the lady of his dreams at the karaoke bar where Zedd’s remix of the track makes an appearance after a sudden flicker of light.
The video manages to maintain a lighter mood than the actual movie and Shawn’s general demeanor (and toplessness) definitely made the video a remarkably memorable one.
