In a music video depicting a short film that can be likened to Ocean’s 11 meets 21 meets Thelma and Louise, two of today’s hottest country females, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, are the smoothest (and sexiest) of all criminals. “Somethin’ Bad,” as we previously noted, is one of the most talked about duets of our time, and rest assure the video is right up there on the list of things to discuss at the water cooler at work today.
Miranda, starring as Belle Boyd, and Carrie, starring as Priscilla Parker, partake in a catwoman-like heist, using their beauty, brains, charm, and perhaps a bit of vindictiveness, to win the trust of card sharks at a Blackjack table. Not only are these two working their underhanded magic at the card table, but they also finagle their way into a bank vault, sporting disguises (envision Velma from Scooby Doo), and raid the customers of their prized possessions.
Speeding away on their motorcycles, the two escape the law, even though performance aspects of the video tend to show that the ladies’ fate was otherwise written. The video ends with the two going from Badass Barbies to Troop Beverly Hills, as they arrive at a helicopter pad in a classy limousine, flying away from authorities in a chopper complete with all the bells and whistles.
It’s true … Somethin’ Bad certainly did happen here, and, of course, we feel nothing but the greatest amount of sympathy for the victims of Belle’s and Priscilla’s activities. However, let’s be honest; there is absolutely nothin’ bad about this song, the video, or the femme fetale in both.
