Blake Shelton shows off his sweet side in his ‘Doing’ What She Likes’ music video, but his attempts at romance go terribly wrong — he ends up stirring up a whole lot of trouble, too.
The clip begins with the country star on his phone, presumably with his wife, Miranda Lambert. “Hey, I was thinking we could just stay in tonight,” he says while walking through the house. “I’ll cook somethin’.”
Shelton adds, “We don’t need to go out … I think it’d be good for me anyway; need to fan the flame a little bit.”
“I think that sounds romantic!” Lambert responds enthusiastically.
Well, ‘Doin’ What She Likes’ does start off extremely romantically. The video depicts Shelton standing in front of a pile of groceries as he begins to work his culinary magic. Lime juice is squeezed. Margaritas are blended. He flips tortillas over on the stove and wipes off the dining room table. And throughout all of that, he only slightly burns his finger and spills a bit of the drink.
Then, the country superstar grabs a bouquet of red roses, scattering the petals all the way up the stairs and into the bathroom, where he fills up the bathtub and lights a few ‘watermelon candles.’
That’s when things begin to go awry.
As Shelton concentrates on scattering the petals perfectly throughout the home, the bathroom curtains get a little too close to the flame, and instead of fanning the flame of romance, his good intentions set fire to the entire house!
One of the best parts of the video is the look of absolute horror on Shelton’s face when he smells the smoke — only he could turn it into a comedic highlight. Firefighters arrive, dousing the home in water, but the singer’s romantic hopes for the evening are dashed — or, rather, they go up in flames!
When Lambert calls his phone as he watches the house fire, he quickly changes plans. Proposes the singer, “On second thought, why don’t we just go ahead and go out to dinner tonight?”
