With increasing frequency, artists are taking to social networks and premiering frustratingly brief teaser clips from their upcoming videos. These are usually between zero and 45 seconds in length and tend to do two things: leave you wanting more video, and leave you wanting fewer teasers. We can’t address the latter. What we can do, however, is help with the former, so, based solely on the preview, Popdust will miraculously predict what transpires in the unseen full-length video.
Today’s video teaser: Demi Lovato’s “Give Your Heart a Break,” out April 2.
Run-length: 18 seconds, only 7 of which are actually video. Yow know our stance on this.
Summary: A stubbly dude peeks at Demi Lovato behind a curtain. Demi Lovato peeks at the stubbly dude behind another curtain. Dude peeks at Demi behind a curtain. Demi peeks at the dude behind a curtain. Cut to advertisements. Oh, and they’re both all demure and smiling, and the guy is probably shirtless underneath the curtain and soft-focus.
What could come next: Well, the obvious route to go here is that Demi Lovato and Mr. Grinnyface will keep peeking at themselves from behind their respective curtains, flirting like they’re playing a game of Whack-a-Mole where neither of them actually whacks a mole. (Don’t turn that into innuendo.) But “Give Your Heart a Break” is a love song, so that won’t do; the curtains will fall, and they’ll unite for one glorious scene among the curtains of–well, of smiling and winking at one another because this is a Demi Lovato video and not “Girl Gone Wild.” Someone will swoon, someone fall for the other, and it’ll all be completely cute. Your heart will get a break; it won’t be broken.
