The French-American singer not only stars in the visual, but she also styled the costumes and served as co-director alongside Tommy Nowels. Lolo describes "Summers in Vegas" as one of the most personal tracks on her album, and she wanted to convey a sense of intimacy throughout the video.
"Just me and the camera. I approached it how I approached one of the first videos I ever directed and edited, 'High Highs to Low Lows,'" she told Complex. "But this time we shot it on a Super 8m which gives it a more elevated feeling than VHS. I love shooting on film because you really only have one shot to capture the moment, and I think that makes my emotions come out more naturally."
She continued: "The song’s lyrics go back and forth between my perspective as a child and my perspective now. I wanted that contrast in the video: the naiveté/goofiness and the more mature/melancholic side. My parents divorced when I was 6, and during the summers I'd fly as an unaccompanied minor from San Francisco to Las Vegas to visit my dad where he owned a pizza place. I basically grew up in a pizza place (baking pizza dough, ringing people up, folding pizza boxes). It was important for me to go back to that time, to the Vegas suburbs, to go to the strip, and mostly to eat pizza."
