Brad Paisley‘s latest single, “Southern Comfort Zone,” is all about his eye-opening experiences traveling the world, so it makes sense he literally traveled to the other side of the planet to film the song’s new video.
Footage from eight different countries, including France, Ireland and Norway, is featured in the video with Brad running through the streets of different foreign cities in several shots. In another segment, Brad has an up close encounter with a giraffe named Congo.
He says, “An interesting fact about this video is there is no green screen. The giraffe is real. Every location is a real location. We flew 10,000 miles to do this, which is a lot of fun for me.”
Brad enjoyed working with the wild animals like Congo the giraffe so much, he might enlist him on a future project.
“He was way better than working with Carrie Underwood. I’ll tell you that,” Brad jokes. “He didn’t ever sort of talk back. He didn’t ever sort of make a fool of me.”
In all seriousness, Brad loves to see the world, and names Paris and Rome as two of his favorite European cities.
“It’s a tossup sometimes,” he says, adding, “Stockholm’s great. Dublin’s great.”
Look for a cameo from Brad’s 2012 tour mates The Band Perry in the “Southern Comfort Zone” video too. It’s the lead single from his new album due out in April 2013.
