Before P!nk's music video for "Try" premiered on Wednesday morning (Oct. 10), the singer declared in a press statement, "Making this video was the most fun I've ever had in my entire career. I never wanted it to end. It's my favorite video ever." That's pretty effusive praise, but the "Try" clip, which finds P!nk and a shirtless romantic partner expressing their frustrations through choreographed dance, makes it easy to see why the pop star so thoroughly enjoyed the shoot.
"Try" has two settings: a bare, one-floor house, and a sunny mountainside. Both allow P!nk and her man (played by dancer Colt Prattes) to engage in heart-wringing physical movements, from tossing each other on a stripped mattress to hovering on one another's shoulders, in total solitude, while neon paint fills their bare skin. The climax of the music video comes when kitchen chairs are thrown, and suddenly the pair, understanding how much they need each other, run forward for an eventual embrace.
