Frankly, the MV for Cool Down isn’t a clip that I can personally find myself watching over and over. I have my reasons for this and I already stated my reasons a while back... so I’m not gonna elaborate on the same topic again.
But there’s a thought that occurred to me not too long ago regarding the MV ➡️ So... I assume, the event (with the girl, the party and the stuff he does with the girl etc.) that’s depicted in the video is supposedly based on James’ real experience — since he seems to insist that his MVs are presented as narratives of his life, so I’m guessing perhaps they’re retelling of actual events...
What we know so far for sure is that Nadine in the Cool Down MV is a figment of his imagination. HOWEVER, what I’m still trying to figure out is whether the series of activities he does with the girl echo a “concrete” experience or an “internal” one. In other words, did he ACTUALLY do all that — you know, escape with some girl to the beach? or is it just something that he experienced in his head too? OR is it merely a reflection of what he was yearning for or of his state of mind (when he was writing the song’s lyrics) BUT never actually happened?
Hmmm... I suppose that’s for him to know and for us to find out... yes? 🤔
