Mia Dimšić was chosen to represent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 with the song “Guilty Pleasure”. Before embarking on a tour of the European pre-parties she has filmed and released a music video for the Croatian version of the song.
‘Netko drugi’ (Someone Else) is a Croatian adaptation of the song ‘Guilty Pleasure’, previously performed and released in March. Mia’s home city of Osijek was the location for the music video, situated in the north east of the country. The music video was directed by Artem Dushkin and his production company Lumiere Productions.
The story in the video shows Mia in a variety of locations in the city. The video features the city’s blue trams, a symbol of Osijek. She is joined by dancers from the Osijek Dance Studio Illusion, with outfits designed by Goran Čižmešija.
We wanted to show the city or interesting locations, but not tourist ones, but to show the city from a different perspective. We decided on the tram because it is a trademark of Osijek and it’s great that we got a tram that looks very nice. The locations we have chosen are very interesting, maybe at first glance some do not even recognize them. We want to show Osijek from the other side. I’ve been here before and I really like Osijek, I always come here with gusto. I noticed that the people in Osijek are good and very open. And, of course, there is fine food and great hospitalityArtem Dushkin (Director) – translated
