The video’s press materials offer insight into its artistic inspiration, sharing, “With its aesthetic partly inspired by early-’90s B-movie horror-comedy, the video for “bad idea right?” follows Rodrigo on a journey to an ex’s house, equal parts surreal and harrowing and fantastically absurd.” This unique blend of visual elements further enhances the song’s narrative.
Rodrigo herself provided intriguing context for “Bad Idea Right?“ in a statement, revealing, “‘Bad Idea Right?’ started with us making a joke song about me hooking up with an ex-boyfriend, but then we realized we were actually onto something. We were throwing the weirdest things at the wall — in one of the choruses there’s a part that sounds like an instrument in the background, but it’s me gradually screaming louder and louder.”
As fans eagerly interpret the song’s nuances and dive into the captivating video, Rodrigo’s upcoming album, Guts, is poised to make its highly anticipated debut on September 8th via Geffen Records.
