Behind The Scenes with Shawn Mendes on the music video of "Lost In Japan (Original + Remix).” 

Shawn Mendes paid tribute to Bill Murray's classic Tokyo romance film Lost In Translation for his "Lost In Japan" video, and now the 20-year-old singer has shared how the spot-on homage came to be.

Mendes -- who teamed up with Zedd for a funky remix of the tune -- released some behind-the-scenes footage of how he incorporated every detail of the famous romcom into his vid, from a green silky robe and white slippers to a hallway with zebra-striped walls. "It's going really well," Mendes says in the clip.

Zedd even joined in on the fun, making an appearance in the karaoke room, where Mendes hilariously had to teach his on-screen love interest the lyrics to "Lost In Japan" as they filmed. If the video looks like Mendes, Zedd and their costars are having a blast, the behind-the-scenes bits prove that they're not just putting on a show.
