An all too familiar comes to life as the California Gurl is shown in a frigid, loveless marriage when she begins to reminisce over her past love, the one that got away. The video itself paints the perfect picture of how things went awry and the make-up team certainly deserves recognition for her seemingly flawless elderly look. These details coupled with the retrospective song looks to make this another smash hit for the pop princess.
The One That Got Away is Perry's sixth single from her double-platinum album, Teenage Dream, which has already garnered five number one hits, California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, E.T. and Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).
