Woah, we gotta admit, we sure didn’t see this coming.
A short snippet of the music video for “Doctor Pepper” has allegedly been leaked, giving us a glimpse of what the highly anticipated MV has to offer. The track, a collaboration between Diplo, CL, RiFF RAFF, and OG Maco, was previously released on 25th May and generated much hype as it gave K-pop fans a taste of CL’s upcoming US solo album.
A Los Angeles photographer and artist who goes by the name of Pretty Puke originally uploaded the video on Instagram, but he later removed the video. Pretty Puke, whose real name is Miller Rodriguez, is an infamous lo-fi photographer known for documenting general “bad behaviour”, as well as snapping highly sexualised and unconventional photos. His works can be viewed on his Instagram (take note that the photos are NSFW).
Speculations ran rife that Pretty Puke is working as one of the crew members for the MV production, but no official source has confirmed the news.
CL is the leader of South Korean girl group 2NE1, however, the group is currently on hiatus after releasing their 2nd full studio album titled “Crush” last year. YG Entertainment then announced that CL will be debuting an US solo album, but has kept mum on the album details including the release date and the title.
Take a look at the leaked Instagram clip here:
A word of caution to K-pop lovers and CL fans though. Don’t get your hopes up, as it is unsure if the snippet is from the production of the official MV. For all we know, it might just be a parody or a homemade video 🙂
UPDATE (25th June, 11:24am):
More behind-the-scenes footage from the alleged music video shoot for “Doctor Pepper” have been released.
A 34-second video, which contains footage from the shoot, was uploaded on YouTube on 23rd June. The uploader of the video stated that the video is a series of Snapchat videos uploaded by a Snapchat user who goes by the name of sistatoothing.
Take a look at the video here:
The video showed a group of dancers cavorting in the distance, before transitioning to another scene where 4 people can be seen dancing on top of a green Hummer limo. The female in the middle bears a striking resemblance to CL but the video was too low quality to determine if it was her.
However, it was later confirmed that the woman in the middle is CL as Diplo uploaded a photo of himself with CL, OG Maco, and RiFF RAFF on Instagram. In the photo, the quartet can be seen standing on top of a green vehicle in a similar location with the aforementioned video, suggesting that the leaked video came from a trusted source.
