The music video was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, who previously shot the clips for Grande's "Break Free
" and "Santa Tell Me
." The visual features Grande singing in different locations while people all around her aggressively make out. Later, Future delivers his rhymes in an office surrounded by employees who start smooching each other as well.
Los Angeles-based actor Mike Still who wrote and starred in ABC's Broken
series is the guy with the ginger beard and beanie at the beginning of the clip. We see him making out with fellow comedian Alison Stevenson. Still told Billboard
magazine that his biggest concern was falling off the car.
"We kept sliding off the hood of the car, so we had sandbags behind us," he recalled. "You could feel Ariana's presence as everything was going on, and I'm just trying not to slide off. I wanted to make it look good for her."
