If you loved Katy Perry‘s video for ‘Roar’, then you’re going to love the 20-minute behind-the-scenes clip she just released about what went into making it! To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever watched the full video (y’all know music videos ain’t my thing) so I don’t really have any interest in this, despite my love for Katy.

The video was filmed at the Arboretum in Los Angeles and features a monkey named Ripley. Fun!

“We like to make big visuals and basically re-remind people that we like to paint with broad strokes… we like to have fun. There’s a wonderful message in this song about… standing up for yourself. Sometimes if you have a serious video and a serious song it can be a little tough. We [wanted] to have a lighthearted visual to go with the song.”

Kewl, Katy. We’re with it. Watch the ‘making of’ video below:
