fun facts about Jon Pardi’s “Heartache on the Dance Floor” video

Jon Pardi has a popular video to go along with his huge hit song, “Heartache on the Dance Floor.” Here are some fun facts about the video.

It was directed by Carlos Ruiz, who’s also worked with country artists Keith Urban, Eric Church, and Luke Bryan. He’s also a photographer.

The car Jon drives around is a 1970(-72?) Pontiac LeMans, possibly a GTO but some folks say it’s not.

The video was shot in California in the following locations:

You’ll see Jon driving the Pontiac mostly on Lincoln Boulevard in Marina Del Rey, California. Background locations include Penguin’s Frozen Yogurt (4023 Lincoln Blvd,
Marina Del Rey, CA 90292), MDR Bike Company, Brennan’s Pub (iconic location in Marina Del Rey and they race turtles here, evidently), in the parking lot beside the pub and next to a smog check station (see pictures), and a building at 100 Market Street. Here’s a gallery of those locations.

Of course, lots of shots in the video are on the beach. You’ll see Jon and the band on the Venice Beach boardwalk, walking near shops like Tuti Fruiti Discount Pipe Shop, and others as shown in the following photos. Notice the Tuti Fruiti sign on the Yelp page is the same one seen in the video below.

And when Jon is not driving on Lincoln Blvd., he’s driving on the Pacific Coast Highway, which runs north/south along the beach coast, and I believe the clips were taken north of Venice Beach where the terrain is more rugged and not as residential or commercial.


Thanks for checking out my post about this popular song and video!
