Behind the Scenes
“We knew the video was gonna go somewhere.”
There’s a scene where Cardi is petting the cheetah. According to the director, that only happened after it was feed a couple pounds of deer meat. More than that, he shared that the original plan was for Cardi to be shot driving an exotic car with the cat in the passenger seat, as wealthy locals do in Dubai.
“We didn’t find a guy that was crazy enough to let us put a cheetah in his passenger seat,” he said. “And I don’t think Cardi would have trusted that cat.”
Picture Perfect ended his story after saying that before the video was even released, him and Cardi had high hopes.
“Technology has just caught up with the time. You can spend 10 to 20 thousand and get a million dollar looking video,” he said. “When I sent her that first cut… We knew the video was gonna go somewhere man. We just knew it.”
