Bruno Mars enlisted actress Freida Pinto for his “Gorilla” video, but fans will be surprised to see this side of her.
The Slumdog Millionaire star, 28, plays a stripper named Isabella who shows off her moves on the pole.
The six-minute video, which also sees a cameo from Luis Gusman, is directed by the song’s co-writer Philip Lawrence Ari Levine.
E! Online reports Mars and Pinto are seen kissing in the backside of a car at one point and the video ends with Pinto, in lingerie, takes Mars’ guitar onstage and lights it on fire by pouring tequila on it.
The song is definitely sexual in nature, with Mars crooning "You got your legs up in the sky / With the devil in your eyes," Mars croons. "Let me hear you say you want it all / Say it now, say it now."
Mars tweeted on Tuesday, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the #GorillaMusicVideo #BangBang.” Pinto also linked to the video and tweeted, “Got to admit this was a hard secret to keep! X o.”
