I’m trying to think of all the things that could make me care about a country pop music video. Maybe if they had Timothy Olyphant and his Raylan hat. Or maybe if there were some, like, really exceptionally cute baby animals. Or maybe if they got Tony Hale to make some weird faces.
Oh, look. They did that last one. I guess I’ll watch.
For the video for their new song, “Bartender,” Lady Antebellum seemed to have some extra cash to burn. They cast Kate Upton and Tony Hale as a heavy drinker and competitive bartender, respectively. They get into the weirdest drinking competition I’ve ever seen— one where only one contestant is actually drinking. Anyway, if the music isn’t your cup of country tea, it’s still worth watching for Buster Bluth’s stunning array of facial contortions (and neck tattoo) and, you know, Kate Upton’s… liver.
