Apparently, a lot of women are destroying a lot of men just by wearing T-shirts. That’s the impression I get watching Brad Paisley’s new video for “Perfect Storm” which premiered Tuesday (Oct. 7) on CMT and CMT.com.
In the video, there’s a storm of photographs swirling around Paisley — all of girls who look like they are probably someone’s perfect storm. You know, the kind of woman who is sunshine mixed with a little hurricane and the one who ain’t just a song but the whole mixtape.
Before Paisley made the video, he asked his fans and followers to send photos of themselves (or someone they love) in T-shirts. All because of the line in the chorus, “She destroys me in that T-shirt.”
Then he posted about the project again on Twitter, asking, “Okay, remember when I asked you gals to send pictures in for the Perfect Storm video?”
Paisley ultimately chose 42 of the photos he received to be in the stormy part of the video. And once he did, he tweeted those fans so that they’d know to watch for their five seconds (or so) of fame.
He wrote things like, “Hey @carpenterlexie nice West Virginia Shirt! You made it into the #PerfectStorm video! Check it out” and “You’re in the video @marciawatts0872! @1annakathryn What’s your horse’s name?” and “Nice crossbow @amandamessinaa @jenogden y’all are in the video.”
But the best tweet went to his wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley, whose photo made it into the video during the line about “that girl right there’s the perfect storm.”
“Congratulations @KimWilliamsPais Your dream has come true! You’re in my music video! Don’t scream,” he joked.
But really, it’s good to see her on the screen with Paisley. Back when they were dating, she was the star of his 2002 video for “I’m Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin’ Song).” And obviously, they were a big hit.
