Camila Cabello again proved that she is the queen of the music video. The Havana singer unveiled her incredibly dramatic video "Laar" on Thursday (September 12th) and it's another cinematic masterpiece.
The 6-minute clip – directed by Dave Myers, who also directed the steamy "Señorita" video with Cabello and Sean Mendes – features Cabello in the middle of a love triangle between billionaire (and total joke) Reese Kensington and an adoring restaurant boy. Cabello's acting skills shine because she also portrays a fabulous Latina talk show host named La Flaka, but it is the crazy bits of the video that make "Lies" really cool.
From free-falling elephants to roaring house fires, check out some of the funniest moments in the video below in the surreal Liar.
When Camilla Starts to Strangle
It's no secret for now that Camila Cabelo is a great actress, but her fake strangulation may be her most convincing act yet. As she tries to tell Reese that she loves the necklace he gave him (which she clearly does not mean), she begins to choke, and that is quite true ̵
After waking up to Reese with the boy's love note on the bus in his hand, Camila knows she needs to get out of the room quickly. As she walks through the house, Reese wakes up to find her there, and goes hunting to find her – and thanks to the high-speed visual effects of the scene, it's pretty rushed. When Everything Becomes the Truth
After Camila admits she hates a weak restaurant and just wants a cheeseburger (relaxing, really), everything around her begins to live out its truth the way she did . Dead roses are back to bloom; the waiter reveals that the food at the fancy establishment is only 10% natural (not 100%); two men start dating with women; balding his mantle; a man reveals his tattoo with his mother's sleeves; and another waiter reveals that he is a break dancer – all in 10 seconds.
When Camilla was crushed by an elephant
Okay, not really. But when Camilla initially reported Reese, she met the first of several misfortunes that followed, the first in the form of a massive elephant falling from the sky. A common occurrence.
When there is an accumulated car crash in the boot of a cyclist
Another Camilla disaster after the truth involves a pack of cyclists who have a domino effect after entering the middle of the street. She even avoids the elephant this time, killing him!
When drones attack
What's scarier than a swarm of buzzing bees? Thousands of buzzing drones, obviously. Her third and final misfortune to tell the truth is in the form of drones, which may be the most horrific tragedy of them all.
When she sets the mansion on fire (and barely escapes)
Although Camilla has a burning desire to open the note given to her by the bus, she seems to think that actually burning it is the best way to combat the urge. Of course, it blows – literally – and suddenly Reese's massive home bursts into flames. Fortunately, she does, but not without seriously blurry hair.
When Reese finds a dildo in Camila's bag
After Camila sets fire to the mansion, Reese subjects her to a lie detector test. First, she pulls out the necklace she still has to wear, which hurts her enough. But once he pulls out a fake, then he just takes offense. Camilla, you're going, girl.
When a little bird brings joy to Camilla
It seems like there hasn't been a ton of real-life moments so far, an animated bird flies into Camilla's room after her "Liar" nightmare ends. the blue bird is pretty adorable, it's just another part that makes you wonder if you need to check your eyes.
When La Flaka says Camilla is not that pretty
the anchor of the anchor changes the ego supplies the tea that Camila left a billionaire for a boy on a bus and between La Flaca and not their anchor, Gordita, and Tammy have more fun, but after a handful of flimsy pockets, La Flaca says, "She's not really that pretty, is she?" then goes on to call Camilla 7, to whom Gordita says, "she's like 5 ". There are a lot of alien things in the lie video, but come on – Camila is 10!
