"We are all misfits living in a world on fire," Kelly Clarkson belts on her latest single, "People Like Us." And in the song's proper music video, which premiered on Tuesday (May 28), the pop star saves said misfits from a lack of color, in a "Pleasantville"-esque plot against the black-and-white world.
As Clarkson's toast to "the damn, the lost and forgotten" plays in the background, a group of stern-looking scientists pore over a tiny, adorable girl who happens to be in Technicolor. With some handy Nokia and BMW product placement in her back pocket, Clarkson wipes away her 50 shades of gray and rescues the little girl from the evil laboratory. Can she escape the scientists chasing her down? You'll have to watch the video to find out!
After scoring another Top 20 hit with "Catch My Breath," Clarkson released "People Like Us" as another single from her "Greatest Hits: Chapter 1" collection last month. The Greg Kurstin-produced track debuted at No. 99 on last week's Hot 100 chart.
Next up for Clarkson is the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, on which she'll support headliners Maroon 5. The annual trek kicks off on Aug. 1 in St. Louis.
