Bruno Mars Teases ‘Gorilla’ Video


Bruno Mars will unleash the video for “Gorilla” on his Facebook page on Monday, Oct. 14, at 3 p.m. EST as part of Facebook’s new #NowPlaying program (Jay Z also launched his “Holy Grail” video there).

The singer has posted a sneak peek on Instagram and will be releasing teasers throughout the weekend leading up to Monday’s premiere. The video was co-directed by Mars and his longtime collaborator, Cameron Duddy.

Following “Locked Out of Heaven,” “When I Was Your Man,” and “Treasure,” “Gorilla” is the fourth single off Bruno’s platinum album Unorthodox Jukebox.

He will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2.

See the first teaser below.

UPDATE: Watch two more teasers starring Luis Guzmán and an iguana.

UPDATE 2: The video premiere has been delayed until Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 3 p.m. EST. He informed his fans via Facebook.

“I can’t wait for you guys to see this video that I’ve been working so hard on. I want it to be the best it can be,” said Bruno. “With that being said, I need one more day. Hope you can understand – I promise it will be worth the wait.”

    I’m still against this song being a single….but the video looks like it may be interesting.


  3. Jess

    Love this song but ‘Natalie’ is a gem. Should definitely have a visual for that track.

    Oh yeah, his VMA performance of this song was just the best!

    I would have loved for Natalie to be released as a single and it’s still not too late maybe as the fifth single but Gorilla is an awesome track and Bruno wanted to try something different and take a risk.

    I have a feeling that all of his songs in the album will be total hits. So it doesn’t matter that Natalie wasn’t the 4th single.
