More behind-the-scenes facts are divulged in the latest episode of Vevo Footnotes, “The Making of ‘Anyone.'” Justin Beiber says in the new episode that he was inspired by everything from The Notebook to boxing films like Creed and Rocky.
“I’ve always wanted to do a boxing video, and it made sense for this song being an 80’s power ballad,” Justin said, adding, “If you’re not in love, it makes you want to be in love. It’s kind of like The Notebook.”
Justin prepared for the video by spending two days training with a fight coordinator. He also spent three hours each morning getting all his tattoos covered up so he would look more accurate to the 1960s time period where the video is set.
