Video Review: Carly Rae Jepsen “Now That I Found You”

At night, Carly Rae Jepsen holds an umbrella over her head as she presses the unlock button on her to key. As she sits in the seat, closing her umbrella, she hears a meow. She closes the door and sees a cat in a cardboard box.

In the morning, she wakes up and talk to the cat sitting next to her on the bed. She sings to the cat as she takes a shower. The cat watches her from the toilet. In the kitchen, the cat sits on its bed on the kitchen table and she pours milk in her cereal. She stirs her coffee and sits on the counter.

She draws a painting of her with her cat. During a candelight dinner, she uses the Tik Top app to add human teeth to her cat as it sits by its food. She changes it to a crown and presses record.

Several cats are added to the painting. She sits in bed with multiple cats. The cats crawl around in the bathroom and the kitten tree stand.

More cats are added to the painting. She wears a blue sport bra with embellishments creating a cat face and high-waisted shorts with “meow” written on them. She carries one of the cats with her in the kitchen. Cats sit beside bowls in the cabinets. At the kitchen table, she wears underwear with a picture of one her first cat and a blue sweater with a pink cat on it.

The cats are painted above the picture frame. She puts catnip in a hookah and smokes it as she sits on the couch. She exhales and thinks of her first cat and slumps on the couch. The wall breaks apart and a magic powder changes her clothes into a cat leotard. She stands up and watches all the cats fly in the night sky.

She wakes up and call for her cat, Cat. She looks out the window and runs. At night, she calls out for Cat in the storm. She walks to the cardboard and sees that its empty.  She turns around and sees a young man holding Cat in his arms. She walks over to him and smiles at him.

Rating: 5/5

The young man puts the dishes the dishwasher and scratches Cat’s chin. Carly Rae Jepsen raises her arms and cheers and says “I finally beat that level.” He gives her a kiss and asks what time the movie starts. She shuts off her tablet and tells him in about a half hour. He stuffs some candy and chips in one of her purses and says he’s ready to go. She tells him he forgot the cheese corn. They both pet Cat and tell him to be good as they leave.

Cat had rescued her. She was unsure if she wanted a pet after putting two of her cats down. However, seeing Cat shivering and malnourished in the rain tugged at her heart. She adopted him. After giving Cat a home, she searched shelters online and put in applications for several cats. Cat needed a couple of friends to keep him company while she was at work one day.

Cat had gotten out one day. She had posted it on her social media and to the shelters around the area. She called the local police station and asked someone had found him. For a month, she was a mess. She needed to take time off work to deal with losing Cat. She failed him.

However, the young man had contacted her and said he had found Cat. She thanked him and offered him some money. He said there was no need but said he would miss Cat. They started talking and she sent him pictures of Cat. He asked her out on a date and she hesitated at first. She hadn’t been in a relationship in a long time. She told him she wasn’t sure. He said it was okay. However, she realized she did really love him. They’ve been together for a year and a half now.
