Nick Jonas' "Jealous" video is so odd, but we can't look away

James Dinh is a twentysomething full-time music junkie, living in New York City. In his spare time, he enjoys endless debates about pop stars, eating pepperoni pizza and anything that Britney Spears touches. Apart from his work at She Kn...

Does Nick Jonas' video for "Jealous" remind anyone else of "Bound II"?

Even though "Chains" didn't receive the kind of shine that it deserved, Nick Jonas is still marching forward with his next single, "Jealous," from his upcoming self-titled album, which drops on Nov. 10.

To celebrate the release, the JoBro took to New York City's South Street Seaport on Tuesday night, Sept. 16, to unveil the single's visual, and it's something like a trip down a 100 percent green-screened rabbit hole — except, with no animals. There was, however, a punching bag and his girlfriend Olivia Culpo present.

Directed by artist Peter Tunney, the almost four-minute video begins with Nick taking a ride on his motorcycle as he passes signs that read "leaving childhood" and "gratitude." But this isn't "Bound" part two, folks. First off, there's no Kim Kardashian and second, his motorcycle journey ends with a stroll down an empty street and past some building art with the phrase "Don't panic." They're the first small glimpses of ways we're assuming the former teen heartthrob is trying to avoid being that kind jealous boyfriend.

So who is Nick getting jealous over? It's his girlfriend and former Miss USA Olivia Culpo, who appears throughout the video in skimpy lingerie and playing the cello. We told you it was a trippy video. In another scene, the pop singer climbs a mountain, but this isn't just any mountain. When Nick Jonas climbs a mountain, he climbs to the top of "gratitude" mountain.

Somewhere in between playing the piano with an old lady in the clouds and shooting some hoops on the court, Jonas finds the time to turn into a yellow cab taxi driver and invites Culpo into his ride with another man. Cue the confusion. In the end, Jonas gets his happily ever after (without the return to reality) when viewers catch scenes of him and just Culpo cuddling up in the driver's seat and dancing in front of, um, some fireworks. Thankfully, there's nothing that can really ruin our image of him, courtesy of that famed selfie, so we still love you, Nick.
