Skylar Stecker’s ‘Hey’ Video Reminds Us That Guys Are Clueless [PREMIERE]
Judging from her music video for "Hey," Skylar Stecker clearly knows a thing or two about unrequited love.
Have you ever experienced unrequited love? If the answer is no, you probably fall into one of the following categories: 1) You are a robot, 2) You are a sociopath, or 3) You are perfect to the point where no one has ever turned you down. For the the rest of the world, there is no feeling more universally understood and experienced than that painful lack of reciprocation when it comes to romantic feelings. It sucks when you like someone who doesn’t like you back, but the truth is that the only way to get the ball rolling is to have the courage to talk to that super cute guy or gal in your biology class in the first place. And that’s the kind of feeling Skylar manages to capture with the music video for her super infectious, all-too-relatable track, “Hey.”
"'Hey' is special to me because I wrote about some of my own personal experiences, but I think the message of the song is something we can all relate to," Skylar tells PopCrush. "It’s about finding the courage to just go up to your crush and be yourself."
She goes through the video trying to command the attention of one of her classmates without actually talking to him. Naturally, it doesn't work. But by the end of the video, she manages to do what the rest of us loser nerds never worked up the courage to do in middle school or high school or for the rest of our lives: She says “hey,” to the boy in question, and we are totally rooting for her.
