Armed with a strong message and a slick use of imagery, the freshly premiered video for “People Like Us” has captivated the scene of the Pop industry recently. It depicts interchanging scenes of Kelly Clarkson performing the song and another series of scenes where she plays the unexpected heroine for an antagonized little girl in what seems to be a research facility filled with shady scientists. In the spirit of a true sci-fi flick, the video has been utilized with special effects shots.
Kelly Clarkson came in hot when her new video premiered on VEVO on May 28, 2013. The video starts out with a group of researchers, including Kelly, conducting strange experiments on a little girl played by twins Rebecca and Vanessa Rogers. With a predominant use of a monochromatic atmosphere, the music video shows the distressed girl as the only one in color while the rest are in black and white. Soon, a chase scene transpires as Kelly is shown trying to help the girl escape from the grim facility. They are pursued by two guards who incessantly chased them until they crossed a tunnel that led to a fully colored environment.
Directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, the music video for “People Like Us” made a great impression not only on Kelly Clarkson fans but on critics as well. Most of the reviews for the video were positive, even being compared to a 1998 film Pleasantville. One particular critic praised the cinematic setting and compared the last few minutes to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Apart from the brilliant use of imagery, the song also garnered praise for the message that it conveyed which was powerfully delivered through the music video.
“People Like Us” is the third single that Kelly Clarkson recorded for her compilation of her first greatest hits album entitled Greatest Hits: Chapter One. Right from the release of the single, it had already been met with such positive reaction from various music experts. When the album was released, the digital sales of the single had seen it at the number 14 spot of the South Korean Singles Chart. It entered the Billboard charts on the Adult Pop Songs Category at number 30 and at number 32 on the Hot Dance Club Songs Category. Meanwhile, its video has reached more than three and a half million views so far on Youtube.
