“I've had this idea in my head for a while now and just wanted the right girl to do it with. The inspiration wasn't just the song, but also just the whole vibe. I saw it as a Jane (from tarzan) or a Sheena Queen of the Jungle kind of thing. She had to be cute, but that's easy with models. But she had to have a raw animalistic quality that made you say "jungle girl." Blonde and wild, and hard bodied. Kat fit the bill perfectly.
Plus she loved the idea so much that she was willing to shoot in a jungle bikini and loin cloth in a river at the tail end of November in Pittsburgh. The sacrifices we make for art.
Speaking of the bikini, I also want to point out that I made that entire outfit. I went shopping at costume shops and couldn't find anything that matched what I had in my mind so I had to design and sew it myself. So I'm quite proud of how this turned out. Couldn't be happier, in fact. Maybe I should open a clothing line.”
