Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler
The music video for Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler was filmed sometime during 2012 at many different locations in Los Angeles, California, and directed by Philip Andelman. Ready or Not is about a girl who is usually shy around boys, but she has finally decided to go after what she wants, including the boy she likes. The video reflects this fun, upbeat attitude. It takes place over the course of an entire day, from morning to dusk to dark, and stars Mendler and various friends as they explore LA.
The music video for Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler opens with Mendler and a group of friends at the beginning of a sunny, clear day. They receive boxes from camp counselors, along with a challenge to complete a scavenger hunt. The groups get in their cars and drive away, spaced with shots of Bridget singing on top of a hill overlooking Los Angeles. The group visits famous locations, such as the Walk of Fame, and takes pictures to prove that they were there. The official lyric video for Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler features all of these pictures, explaining why they were in a box marked “Scavenger Hunt.”
Next, Bridgit and her group climb onto a boat to explore Venice, and complete more activities like hula hooping, skateboarding, and surfing. They also eat hot dogs and dance on the sidewalk, laughing with each other and having lots of fun. Each time they do something, they take a picture and cross an item off of their list. By the time their list is almost complete, it is nighttime in Los Angeles, and they drive around, enjoying the sights of the city. Bridgit, in her convertible, throws her hands up as she sings.
As the timer counts down, Bridgit and her friends run up to the counselors, giving them their photos. The group wins, the scavenger hunt successfully completed, and the counselors set off sparklers to celebrate. The group reviews their memories of the day and takes pictures of some new ones, relaxing on the hilltop after a long day. The video ends with a fading shot of lights over Los Angeles. Although the song is about a love interest, the music video for Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler does not feature any particular romantic love interest. Even so, the video is fun, fresh and youthful, just like the song that accompanies it.
