Jaron and Cavallari Are Beautiful to Everyone

Boy. That Jaron guy is some kind of genius. He takes his follow-up single to the passive-aggressive debut “Pray for You” and turns it into some kind of Hollywood/Nashville mash-up with the video. Have you seen it? It stars Jaron and Kristin Cavallari , who is probably best known for her role as herself in MTV’s The Hills. So the video brings to life the idea that it’s the little things — things that are not textbook beautiful — that are actually beautiful to men. But because both Jaron and Kristin are so thoroughly good looking, even as little kids in the opening and closing scenes, the music video comes off looking like the falling-in-love montage from a romantic comedy. It might have been a little more believable with two not-so-gorgeous lovebirds, but sometimes reality’s not all it’s cracked up to be. But what I think is so genius is that by casting Cavallari, he’s making country fans out of The Hills fans.
