Two weeks after premiering their latest single, “Ferocious”, Jedward are back with the official video. Three and a half minutes later, it’s clear that the “new” Jedward are far better on film than live on stage.
Their Saturday Night Show performance was awkward and borderline car crash, by contrast this is up with “Luminous” as one of their slickest productions. They’ve even recruited their fellow Celebrity Big Brother 2011 housemate, actress Tara Reid, to provide some D-list Hollywood glamour.
In case y’all hadn’t noticed already, Jedward are “serious” now. Accordingly, there’s lots of brooding glances and smouldering pouts to camera. Ironically, the video is as nonsensical as their previous efforts. The plot is flimsy at best, involving attempted arson, gangs, Tara’s penthouse, and a getaway car. It’s questionable how all this ties in with the song’s message of self-empowerment. But then again, it’s nice to see that no matter how grown up the pair decide to be, there’ll always be some manic incoherence.

Rumours have been building of a Eurovision comeback for Jedward. Could something like this do the trick?
