Go behind-the-scenes of Phoebe Bridgers’ ‘Savior Complex’ video, directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge

"I hope we get to get married so we have the exact same name”

Phoebe Bridgers has given a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her video for ‘Savior Complex’ – watch below.

Released earlier this month, the black-and-white visuals star Normal People‘s Paul Mescal and were directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve).

In a new video shared today (December 10), we see Bridgers, Waller-Bridge and Mescal filming in the British Isles. “I’ve only ever shot music videos in LA before, so it’s definitely a change of scenery,” Bridgers explains.

“I had sent Phoebe [Waller-Bridge] the whole record in an email, and I was like, ‘I’d love to pick this, this, or this song’,” Bridgers says, “and none of them were ‘Savior Complex’. Phoebe was like, ‘No, we’re doing ‘Savior Complex’.”

Bridgers adds: “Phoebe Waller-Bridge is an angel. And I hope that we get to get married so that we just have the exact same name.”

Later, Bridgers says that Waller-Bridge “fired” her from the lead role in the ‘Savior Complex’ video in favour of a chihuahua, who is then seen running on the beach towards Mescal.

Last week, Bridgers gave a festive performance of the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. ‘Savior Complex’ features on the singer’s Grammy-nominated second album, ‘Punisher’.
