No, ladies, you did not miss the casting call. “To be honest, we really only had one girl in mind,” Joe Jonas told us from “somewhere in Canada” while on a three-way call yesterday. “I just find Ashley Graham so beautiful.” “How could I say no?” Graham chimed in from her vacation in Florida. “We met in the trailer, and our first scene was in the bed,” Joe added. “We hit it off, just walked right into it. This video was a dream come true.”
Really, Graham and Jonas just met before filming? It certainly didn’t look that way in the video; the chemistry between them is the steamiest thing we’ve seen on screen since Olivia Wilde took all of her clothes off on Vinyl. Those stairwell kisses, backseat glances, bedroom caresses? Damn. DNCE brought a much more intimate flavor this time around, considering this video is the follow-up to DNCE’s first, “Cake By the Ocean,” which features the band—longtime friends Joe Jonas, Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle, and JinJoo—in a beach dance-off against the Fat Jew.
So, here’s one thing we had to get an opinion on: What are Jonas’ and Graham’s views on the right time to leave a toothbrush behind? That’s kind of a big moment in a relationship, right? They weigh in:
“I think it’s a pretty big step,” Jonas shares. “Leaving a sweatshirt is understandable, but a toothbrush is a statement. And that’s kind of why we wrote the song. If you really think about it, no one wants morning breath. And you’re obviously staying over quite a bit—I mean, no one has more than one toothbrush, right? I would say it’s gotta be a few visits before that conversation happens.”
“Only a few?” Graham chimes in.
“OK, what, a hundred?” Jonas asks.
“Leaving a toothbrush is a commitment,” Graham responds. “That’s like, we’ve already had the BF/GF discussion, we’re going in!”
“But there is a conversation that pre-meditates the leaving of the toothbrush?” we ask.
“You should definitely have a conversation before you leave a toothbrush,” Jonas answers. “I’d be freaked out if you didn’t.”
“Yes, there’s definitely a discussion,” Graham concludes. “I think if a woman leaves a toothbrush at a guy’s house, she’s letting him know that he’s going to have to commit soon or there’s a problem.”
