The latest video from Bon Jovi completes the star-crossed tale of Astrid and Duddy, two kids who are just trying to hold on to what they’ve got. Sound familiar?
In the last installment of the Fisher Stevens-directed trilogy for the band’s latest single, “Because We Can,” off What About Now, out March 12, we finally find out if things end happily ever after.
Previously we got a closer look at New York boxer, Duddy, who sees a beautiful girl across the room during a fight and gets knocked out, literally. The K.O. doesn’t do much for his boxing career, but all he can think about is the beautiful brunette who gives him a sweet smile.
Though he shares a dreamy dance with the unknown girl, he unfortunately doesn’t get her number. Luckily, she does leave a mysterious card from the local burlesque club with the name ‘Astrid’ written on it.
As he prepares to ship out with the army he decides to visit his dream girl, only to find out she’s at the boxing club, looking for him.
With Duddy off at war, we check in with a restless Astrid, who is a waitress at a rather sleazy club. Luckily, Jon and the boys are there performing to help class the place up. That girl with the fans is pretty talented too.
Astrid can’t seem to get her boxing guy out of her mind. She even imagines seeing him at the club and in her apartment. Luckily, he did actually send her a letter that finally gives them a chance to talk.
But when do they actually meet face to face? Well, it takes a while.
In the final video, we see Duddy happily make his way back home as Astrid sadly celebrates her birthday with a friend and receives some very creepy presents from the guy we saw earlier at the club. Luckily the second ring of the doorbell is a lot better.
Do they finally make it work? You’ll have to watch the latest video for “Because We Can” below to find out, and be sure to check out Radio.com’s re-broadcast of Bon Jovi’s recent Tampa concert.
