Katy Perry's official music video for "Roar," which premiered on Thursday afternoon (Sept. 5), finds the pop singer on a solitary adventure through jungle terrain, where she finds the "eye of the tiger" by… literally taming a wild tiger. Say farewell to the blue-wigged dreaminess of Perry's "Teenage Dream" era, and welcome to the fierce, monkey-assisted "Prism" age.
The "Lost"-meets-"George of the Jungle" clip begins with a timid Perry staggering away from a plane crash; the Indiana Jones-esque dummy next to her takes a quick selfie before getting mauled by a tiger. Fortunately, the pop star is stronger than her male counterpart: she conjures a swarm of fireflies during the first chorus, and from there, she begins to dominate the wildlife around her. By the end of the "Roar" clip, Perry is painting an elephant's nails, fashioning spears out of black heels and goofing around with a monkey. Was it all a dream? No spoilers here, of course.
