Look familiar? Justin Bieber is so besotted he picked a lookalike of girlfriend Selena Gomez to smooch with in his Boyfriend video
With his actual girlfriend busy fulfilling her work commitments, it seems as though Justin Bieber - the crazy, lovesick fool - has had to make do with a lookalike to take her place.
The 18-year-old could be seen smooching a brunette who looked very similar to the Disney star on the set of his Los Angeles video shoot for Boyfriend.
But fear not, fans of the super-saccharine couple, because the girl was merely a model acting a part for the new edgy, and decidedly more adult style video.
He may be growing up fast but Bieber clearly still enjoys playing with his toys.
The singer was spotted sitting in a muscle car and getting ready to ride a motorcycle as he recorded some final scenes for the promo.
And the pint-sized pop singer looked in jubilant mood as he enjoyed himself in the California sun.
Is that my car: Justin Bieber looked impressed when he saw the Ford Mustang as he filmed his Boyfriend video in Los Angeles today
The orange Ford Mustang and the spray-painted motorbike certainly seem in keeping with the edgier image the Baby star wants to carve for himself.
And Justin certainly seems to fancy himself as a bit of an easy rider if his on-set props are anything to go by.
The singer was wearing a sleeveless denim jacket, shoes and an almost impossibly high quiff for his starring role.
How do you start this thing? The star seemed to amuse the crew as he struggled to get his bearings behind the wheel
Bootiful: The pop idol's propensity for donning outlandish footwear continued as he wore golden trainers
Impressed by his car? Justin was spotted kissing the hand of the Selena Gomez lookalike who features in the video
Later he was spotted getting to grips again with the Selena Gomez lookalike who stars in his video.
There is already plenty of footage in the can for one of the most exciting pop events of the year, with teaser scenes from the video already being shown on The Voice earlier this week..
The film noir style clip gave an even better insight into his more adult direction as it showed him lit by moody dark blue light, cutting a dramatic silhouette then seducing a beautiful woman.
He also used the hit show as a platform to advertise the fact his new album Believe will hit stores on June 19.
What next? The Baby star seemed to be seeking direction about how to handle his co-star
