On April 30, TXT uploaded a behind-the-scenes of their new “Cat & Dog” music video.
TXT fans will notice that there’s one scene near the beginning of the video that they didn’t see in the music video. In the scene, the boys are riding down an empty street on scooters, a bicycle and a hover-board.
Most artists and groups shoot scenes for music videos that the public may never see. Since music videos are so short and they film so much, they have to be very picky with what makes the final cut.
The cutting of this particular scene is interesting though, since two music videos were banned by KBS just last week for including similar scenes.
BLACKPINK‘s “Kill This Love” and Park Bom‘s “4:44” were banned for breaking traffic laws. In “Kill This Love,” Rosé is driving “recklessly,” and in “4:44” Bom walks alone in a tunnel meant for cars. Interestingly, a bicycle caution sign can be seen to the right of TXT in the behind-the-scene.
This being the case, it’s possible that BigHit foresaw this scene being a problem with broadcasting and didn’t want to take the risk.
Even if that wasn’t the case, and the scene was just cut as a natural part of editing, fans are still beyond grateful for this look behind the scenes that gave us so many gems – like this bone-guitar-strumming Yeonjun.
