Well, that’s not exactly the collaboration we’d been looking for. On April 29, Selena Gomez shared the doll version of her clip “Boyfriend”, and ARMYs noticed that Jin and Jungkook from BTS from the Mattel collection made an appearance. And basically everyone is looking forward to seeing real collaboration with the seven members in the future.
Selena Gomez shares the doll version of “Boyfriend” which presents Jin and Jungkook from the Mattel collection
Gomez released the official clip for “Boyfriend” on April 10. A few weeks later, the singer released the doll version on her YouTube channel. As the title suggests, the video recreates the original image frame by frame with dolls. And in both versions, Gomez goes out with a number of men before turning all of his suitors into frogs.
When Gomez posted the video on April 29, many fans pointed out that Jin and Jungkook dolls from the BTS x Mattel collection were featured. There is a clear shot from Jin towards the 1:47 mark and finally he is transformed into a frog. Meanwhile, ARMY noticed Jungkook’s red hair in the background at 1:06 a.m. The doll version of Gomez also passes in front “Idol” outfits worn by BTS from the mark 0:47.
On his Instagram stories, Gomez revealed that the doll version of “Boyfriend” was led by the fan account @ selenagomez.doll. The user has been around since 2014 and has since produced numerous recreations of Gomez’s work, from music videos to live performances. Given the massive fandoms that support both BTS and Gomez, the overlap is not surprising. But as of yet, it’s unclear if Gomez is aware of the BTS mini-collaboration in the video.

Even if Gomez is not aware of the presence of BTS in the doll version of “Boyfriend”, the unexpected cameos were still a nice surprise for ARMYs around the world.
” No way! Selena Gomez actually used Mattel dolls from Jin and Jungkook in his latest new video, “wrote a fan on Twitter alongside a crying emoji.
“Jin and Jungkook’s lmao doll,” wrote a fan in YouTube comments. “I never thought my Selenator and the ARMY world would collide like this. “
Meanwhile, other fans couldn’t help but make light jokes about Jin’s acting beginnings in the “Boyfriend” clip.
“That’s not what I meant by wanting actor Jin,” wrote a fan on Reddit.
“Selena Gomez used the Seokjins Mattel doll in her MV ??? Wow Seokjin products are still popular! ” another fan tweeted. “I can’t believe his doll and son RJ started playing before him. “
But for the most part, the cameos reminded fans of how much they wanted real collaboration between Gomez and BTS.
“When I said I wanted to Collab SG X BTS I don’t think I mean that lol, “wrote a fan in response to the video.
“When the bts find out, will be flattered by the video made by the fans, will tweet about it, selena responds and I finally have a good interaction AHHH,‘ another fan tweeted.
In the past, the seven BTS members – RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook – have indicated that they want to work with Gomez. Of course, we know that an official crossover remains to be seen. But for now, the doll version of “Boyfriend” will do the trick.
