Despite being responsible for one of 2015's best (if most overlooked) pop albums, Carly Rae Jepsen's been keeping busy with other projects lately; most notably, her turn as Frenchy in Grease: Live and her contribution to Netflix's questionable Fuller House. But thankfully, she's finally dropped the video for "Boy Problems" — €”one of the strongest tracks off of E•MO•TION — and it's every bit as poppy, peppy, and all-around ‘80s-tastic as the song itself.

Directed by Petra Collins and featuring a cameo by Tavi Gevinson —€” who, it should be noted, could easily pass as Jepsen's blonde twin sister —€” the clip sees the Canadian songstress shimmying around in a handful of looks that'd fit right in on one of Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent runways *pours one out*. Think slinky slips, crystal-studded tights, lamé dresses, and even a grunge tiara. Watch "Boy Problems" below!
