Looks Like Sex - Mike Posner |

Thought I was stuck this week for my Thursday Revisit, trust me to have already written about all of Alexandra Stan's music videos which are five years older or more. Luckily, for me, Mike Posner was the feature on Nick Jonas' "Remember I Told You" alongside Anne-Marie; so, I picked him for my Thursday Revisit this week. This song didn't chart well globally, and it's understandable since this song isn't all that memorable, and the black and white music video isn't anything special. Watch Mike Posner perform his song whilst women dance sexily as lights flash on and off throughout this music video for "Looks Like Sex".

Mike Posner is one of these artists that have a big massive hit, then isn't heard from for a few years, and then makes a total comeback with one song, and goes away again. This is the story of Mike Posner's life and it definitely has a lot of ups and downs. He's most notable for "Cooler Than Me" and "I Took A Pill In Ibiza". This was his fourth single to be released, and it charted well in Belgium, managing to reach the top five in both of their official charts. The song was written by Mike Posner and Mason Levy.

Directed by Jason Beattie, the music video is shot purely in black and white, apart from the occasional scene that contains a bit of colour that is more on the faded side than anything else.

It's a pure performance visual which Mike Posner does an okay job of pulling off, but he doesn't exactly engage the audience and gets outshined throughout by the women in the video.

On the costumes are some parts that light up, this looks so good and makes me wish I had those clothes; however, it doesn't save the video and fails to keep our attention.

Overall, I wasn't expecting much, not going to lie; but, I still expected something better than this. It doesn't go anywhere and isn't all that memorable throughout. Mike Posner has done so much better when it comes to music videos.
