Katy Perry's jungle adventure

Katy Perry's jungle adventure
By the end of the video, Perry has made peace with the animals and sings to a parrot.

UNITED STATES - Watching a Katy Perry video used to be a really enjoyable experience. If you loved Teenage Dream and California Gurls, you'd know that entering Perry's Lala Land was akin to being in a technicolour world that is equal parts camp, nonsense and hilarity.

Then, the 28-year-old US pop star made The One That Got Away and Part of Me - dark, hardhitting videos that were edgier, but a lot less fun.

Thankfully, Roar, the brunette beauty's new music video that accompanies her latest chart-topping hit single, brings back some of her rainbowesque, over-the-top trademarks.

A full-on jungle adventure, it follows Perry's hapless character who gets stranded on a tropical island following a plane crash.

Initially, she is frightened by the sight of wild animals - her onscreen boyfriend gets eaten by a tiger early on in the clip - but she gradually builds up her survival skills and ta da, becomes queen of the jungle!

The best scenes though, are the ones which provide the laughs, like when she attempts to brush an alligator's teeth, pose for photos with a monkey, or give her new elephant friend a manicure.
