I can hardly stand music videos, and “Good Time” by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen is the kind of catchy pop song you get tired of after about ten listenings. But bring together “Good Time” and its accompanying little film, and you have a likable entertainment.
The subject matter of the video is simple: Adam Young (he’s Owl City), Carly Rae and other young people go camping—enjoying every minute of it. With the music, the film is charming; solo turns by Young and Jepsen are properly shot and seductively pleasant. And, hey, the kids never get drunk or high. One supposes the black girl with the cross around her neck would never go for that. There isn’t even any amorous kissing.
Also, the video is unpretentious, unlike scores of other music videos.
Needless to say, the “Good Time” flick is available on YouTube.
