If you’re a fan of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, you’re either gonna love this or cringe like…cray cray?
Anybody who’s made their way through Season 2 of the show has become aware of Trish’s attempt at furthering her celebrity by entering the music business with her song “I Want Your Cray Cray.” And just as you might assume from the title alone, the song is really, really bad. The entire two and a half minutes of “music” is literally just Trish saying “I want your cray cray” to a generic poppy background. That’s it; no verse, no chorus, just Trish telling you how much she wants your cray cray. What the fuck does that even mean?
What’s more, the video was apparently directed by Maximilian Tatum, the asshole director Trish confronts early on in the season, accusing him of being a bit too sexual with her when she was a teenager. That just makes it all the more horrible.
Perhaps the one redeeming factor here is that small tidbits pop up from time to time, giving you a bit of insight into Trish’s past that we don’t necessarily get to learn in the show. It’s a really strange way to expose some lore, but I guess it’s okay.
As much as this might haunt Trish’s dreams, the real life people who make Jessica Jones had a great time filming the video. Melissa Rosenberg, the series’s creator, told IndieWire,
I loved shooting that music video. It was the worst song ever. The point of it was a play on these Disney stars that have their moments as pop stars and their songs are like ‘I throw my hair,’ like one line. One lyric.
