Should Keith Urban’s New Video Be Rated “NSFW”?

"Somewhere in My Car" Features Skin, Steamed-Up Cars and Creepy Post-Breakup Collages

A press release announcing Keith Urban’s new video for “Somewhere in My Car” describes it as his “most risqué to date, a provocative must-see.”

Now, how you interpret risqué is up to you.

You may consider this black-and-white video as both artistic and erotic. And it is. There’s a perfect balance between the two.

But let’s say you’re watching it at work, and your boss looks over your shoulder at the exact second that the man and woman in the video are embracing in the rain and there is a very clear shot of a naked side boob. Then is it risqué? Or simply NSFW (Not Safe for Work)?

Because during the course of the four-minute video, there’s a lot more than just the side boob.

There’s also some top boob, when the woman yanks her camisole down so low, there’s almost an intentional wardrobe malfunction. And there’s also a butt reveal because her cutoffs are cut off a little too high to even be called shorts.

Add to that the very obvious sex scene going on inside the car, and, well, it’s fantastic. I can’t stop watching it. Then again, this is my job, so I don’t have to worry about anyone questioning whether or not it is NSFW.

The video was shot in Cincinnati, of all places, during his recent tour. Urban only gets close to his guitar in his portion of the video marking the acting debuts of models Jehane Paris of Miami and Rodrigo Calazans, originally from Brazil.

The song isn’t about the backseat love, per se. It’s more about the memory of it and longing for those nights after she’s left.

The song doesn’t address why she left, but I’m guessing it has something to do with the super-creepy collage of photos on his wall and the single-room-occupancy vibe of his bedroom. It doesn’t have to be professionally decorated, but maybe a nice bedspread and a nightstand could help bring her back.

In the press release, Urban calls the song “melancholy” and said his intention of the video was to be focused on “the intoxicating emotion of ’those nights.'”

If you’re lucky, you know exactly what kind of nights Urban is talking about.
