by (@kat_george)

Katy Perry has revealed a sneak peek of her new video for “The One That Got Away,” the forthcoming single from her album Teenage Dream. Katy’s last single, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)”, not only was our 2011 Song Of The Summer, it tied her with Michael Jackson for the record of most #1 hits from one album. At the time, we speculated that Katy might have a a chance to dethrone the King Of Pop; will this be the single to do it?

Well, from what we can gather from this preview of “The One That Got Away,” her chances seem promising. Although it has some similarities to Rihanna‘s voice over/narrative-led video for “We Found Love,” Katy’s video seems much more whimsical, with a soft focus aesthetic and some very Zooey Deschanel moody eyes and eyelash batting. With building hype around the single and an emotional trailer, will “The One That Got Away” make Katy the kitty that got the cream?
