Just a few minutes ago, the official video clip of the 2017 Croatian entry My friend was released, performed by Jacques Houdek.

The music video was shot in late March in the Croatian capital, Zagreb. The director was Katja Restović, who had also directed the music video for Doris Dragović’s Eurovision entry Marija Magdalena in 1999.

Here you could enjoy the video clip through the official Eurovision Song Contest channel in YouTube:

Jacques Houdek was very happy to shoot the music video in the city where he grew up, Zagreb. Before the filming of the video, he had stated:

I have worked closely with the director Katja Restović for years. The video will be filmed on the city streets, and it will be simple, lively, and human. It will follow a few parallel stories that portray the everyday life that surrounds us all.
