In the video for Bruno Mars song “Grenade,” the singer drags a piano through crowded streets and deals with every obstacle imaginable for the one he loves.
Video: Bruno Mars, “Grenade”
The clip, which was released today (Nov. 18), starts with Mars sitting in his room, reflecting on a failed relationship while rain pours in sheets outside. He drags a piano to his lady friend’s place, but is confronted by gang members along the way. They try to prevent him from getting to his woman, but to no avail — Mars will do whatever it takes to see her.
Once he arrives at her house, he finds another man by her side. A heartbroken Mars continues his journey nonetheless, carrying the burden of the past behind him.
Referencing the lyrics, “I’d jump in front of a train for you,” the video ends with Mars standing in front of train tracks as a train comes speeding in his direction.
Cheer up, Bruno! We still love you.
“Grenade” is off Mars’ recent breakthrough album, “Doo-Wops & Hooligans.”
