Brantley Gilbert Finds Loads of Moonshine, Pretty Ladies in ‘Bottoms Up’ Video
The clip begins with ravishing ladies dressed to the nines in flapper garb. Their glittering dresses and perfectly coiffed hair contrast nicely with rugged wooden boxes full of illegal moonshine. Boots in the Stand headliner Gilbert, standing by a vintage car and also attired in 1930s apparel, asks one of the women carrying a case, “Are we loaded up yet?” She responds, “Almost, BG.”
As more and more moonshine is loaded up, another gorgeous gal asks, “Think we’ll make it, BG?”
“We always do,” he replies with a slight grin.
The Prohibition-themed ‘Bottoms Up’ video follows Gilbert and his accomplices along as they prepare to party, while a group of armed bodyguards follows behind in another antique vehicle. When the group gets to their destination — a flamboyant mansion that’s located in the middle of a desolate field — the scene transforms into present day.
The bad-to-the-bone singer sports his trademark chains, leather and black baseball cap, and the partygoers (mostly women) are wearing midriff-baring shirts, short skirts and everything else you’d expect at a kicking party. Spirits are poured relentlessly, and Gilbert, as you may expect, is surrounded by women who are literally fawning over him — and he doesn’t seem to mind one bit.
Eventually, the short film cuts to the outside of the mansion, where it’s once again shifted back in time. The sheriff starts to walk up to the home, which is blaring music, but a guard stops him, saying, “Sheriff, you don’t want to do this. I think it’s best if you go home tonight.”
You’ll have to watch to see what happens in the end, as there’s a last-minute confrontation between Gilbert and the sheriff. Let’s just say one thing: you don’t want to mess with this country-rocker, whether it’s modern-day or 1930.
