"Bucket" is a song by Canadian singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen, released in April 2009 as the third single from her debut studio album, Tug of War. The song peaked at number 32 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Music video[edit]

The official music video for the song premiered August 5, 2009,[1] and received heavy airplay on Canadian music video channel MuchMusic. The video features Jepsen and her friends spending the day on the beach, ending with a bonfire scene. The video was shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in late April 2009, and the weather was "freezing cold" on the day of filming. All the extras in the video are Jepsen's real-life friends, and Jepsen commented that it felt more like a "beach party" than a music video.[2]
