Whisperado - Teenage Popstar Girl
The witty, subversive "Teenage Popstar Girl" music video follows an awkward tween who worships an impossibly perfect, airbrushed popstar – only to discover her idol isn't what she seems. Whisperado's quirky, upbeat song is brought to life as a satiric tale in which singers and celebrities are pre-packaged and mass-marketed like plastic dolls.
The video's 1960s look was inspired in part by the song's Americana sound. It's a cautionary tale -- a young girl gets manipulated and seduced by a manufactured icon. The innocent, retro feel of the video also makes for a striking contrast when we see the more cynical stuff going on behind the scenes.
