You would think that with a song that constantly uses the phrase "I'm in love with your body,"
would come with an over-sexualized video with half-naked women showing off that body that Ed Sheeran
loves so much. But no - the video for "Shape of You" is a pleasant, innocent surprise.
But nah, this video is actually pretty cute. Starring Jennie Pegouskie as a boxer that Ed Sheeran falls in love with; the video shows their time meeting at the gym where Pegouskie trains, and eventually going on dates, and training together. It's awesome how Sheeran made a song that is clearly more sexually-tinged into a charming love story that shows that love will make you do something like train to get ready for a fight in an unspecified location, and then end up fighting a sumo wrestler who is clearly better than you, then throws you to the ground, and the person that you love comes to kick them in the face.
Something like that.
Anyway, this is a really pleasant surprise from Sheeran, who didn't take the easy way out when making the video for this song.
