Pink Drops Hilarious Music Video for ‘Beautiful Trauma,’ Starring Channing Tatum

For anyone who saw the American Music Awards on Sunday night, the title track from Pink’s latest album, “Beautiful Trauma,” will forever be associated with the mind-boggling sight of her singing the song while rappelling down the side of the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, approximately 30 stories from the ground, proving that it is possible to go beyond her usual shtick (that’s a joke) of singing while suspended from a trapeze attached to an arena ceiling.

Well, two days later, there’s another set of awesome images to go with the song. In a hilarious video that turns 1950s kitsch into high art, we see Pink and Channing Tatum — as Fred and Ginger Hart (geddit?) — playing a married couple dancing old-school-style in a series of garishly colored polyester outfits around a series of equally vivid, bright-colored sets: starting off conventionally with cooking, ironing the clothes, but then getting into cross-dressing and finally an S&M routine where Tatum is tied up and Pink is the dominatrix.

The clip, which even features bloopers playing as the credits run, was directed and choreographed by Nick Florez and RJ Durell and seems likely to be nominated for multiple best video awards. What are you waiting for? Watch it here:
