Channing Tatum Co-Stars in Pink's '60s-Style "Beautiful Trauma" Video

The stars dance through the video in an homage to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

To start her new video for "Beautiful Trauma," the title track of her most recent album, Pink lifts her pink sleeping mask inscribed with "Mrs." and stretches. Upon getting out of bed, she awakens a sleeping Channing Tatum, who serves as her husband in this colorful alternate universe where they are not Pink and Channing Tatum, but rather Ginger and Fred Hart — an homage to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Ginger gets dressed for the day — apron and all — and vacuums her all-blue living room while Fred sits on the couch (still covered in plastic) and reads the morning's newspaper. Ginger is trying her best to be a perfect housewife, but she irons a hole into Fred's dress shirt and singes their breakfast. Fred sneaks some alcohol into his morning coffee, while Ginger downs handfuls of pills from the cabinet, playing on the song's hook "My love, my love, my love, my drug."

Both feeling a little higher, they break out into full-fledged choreography in the green-themed kitchen. Later in the video, after Ginger and Fred cross-dress for fun at home, they take their dancing to a proper club where the night turns a bit naughty before the couple return home to tuck neatly into bed — exactly where they started.

The video is billed as a Goldenboyz Picture directed and choreographed by Nick Florez and RJ Durell.
