  • In the second music video for her track, Smile, Katy Perry transforms into a video game character on a quest to find joy.
  • Orlando Bloom also makes an appearance in the video in animated form.
  • Katy has previously released a performance video for Smile.

Katy Perry has released another music video for her track, Smile

The song is the second release from her latest album with the same name. The singer, like many other musicians, has had to find creative ways to film her music videos during the coronavirus pandemic. For the Smile video, this meant using animation to bring the track to life.

The video starts with the pregnant star walking through her home with a pie before stumbling upon a video game. Of course, she can't resist but to sit down and start playing. Katy then transforms into the clown character she selects in the game and proceeds to go on an adventure which sees her spreading love and joy.

Oh, and we should probably mention that Orlando Bloom makes an appearance too (in cartoon form). When Katy's character kisses a frog in the game, he turns into her prince charming - Orlando.

Katy has previously released a performance video for Smile. Keeping to the clown theme, which is also present on her album cover. In this video, the singer is shrunken down as she dances around giant objects.
