The new video, which some describe as a short film, written and directed by Jesse Peretz (who happens to be one of the founding members of late ‘80s alt rock band The Lemonheads) was produced by Selena Gomez. She stars as four characters in the heavily retro-influenced footage, including a lovestruck high school student, gym coach (complete with Farrah Fawcett’s iconic blonde hair), as well as her own father and mother. The imagery seems completely appropriate, as the song prominently samples the Talking Heads’ 1977 single, “Psycho Killer.”

With the title “Fetish,” we can’t help but think back to the original visuals, like this one, where Selena sings with wrists tied:
