Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” video is the polar opposite of her previous over-the-top party clip for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”. We witness an aged Katy flashing back to her artistic long lost love, played by Diego Luna. And while we figured their relationship would end badly, just given the nature of the song, we weren’t quite prepared for the final scenes of the clip. Grab plenty of Kleenex and watch below!
We start off watching Katy in her twilight years in the Floria Sigismondi-directed video, as she and her husband seem to display very little chemistry between them within their California home. While having a cup of coffee, she begins to think back to her younger days, when she lived with a moody artist.
The much-in-love young pair attend a wedding party and spend a lot of their time painting. But an eventual fight leads Diego to storm out and speed off in his Mustang — a drive that proves to be his last.
But let’s not ruin it by babbling. Just watch:
Katy Perry — “The One That Got Away”
At six singles in, if this is indeed Katy’s final visual from her latest album, it’s an extremely emotional — and, might we add, perfect — way for her to take a final bow out of her Teenage Dream era.
“The One That Got Away” was produced by Max Martin and Dr. Luke, who it turns out is another one that got away as far as Katy’s career is concerned.
