Camila Cabello makes telling the truth look deadly in the surreal music video for "Liar"

Honesty may not always come easily, but for Camila Cabello and the music video for “Liar,’ the truth comes with swarm of deadly drones, a dozen-cyclist pile-up, or even an unprecedented elephant drop. Luckily it’s all just a nightmare... that she has to relive over and over again.

It’s the classic romantic tale: Girl dates a fuckboy billionaire (Euphoria’s Zak Steiner), girl catches the eye of a kindly busboy (The Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow alum Keiynan Lonsdale), girl attempts to follow her heart only to set her boyfriend’s mansion on fire. There’s also a moment when she dances with a group of straitjacketed women, which makes only marginally more sense within the context of the video.

Directed by legend Dave Meyers, “Liar” joins a portfolio of cinematic videos like Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On,” Outkast’s “B.O.B.,” and Janet Jackson’s “All For You.” Cabello first released “Liar” on Septemeber 6 alongside a second song, “Shameless.”
