Johnny Orlando is giving us the inside scoop on what *really* went down behind the scenes of his “Phobias” music video!

In case you missed it, the upbeat ballad perfectly captures that oh-so-relatable fear of falling in love after suffering from a broken heart, and comes to a head with an epic kiss between the 17-year-old singer and his longtime friend Emily Skinner. It’s been weeks since the romantic visual premiered, but we’re still not over it!

To find out how everything went down, we caught up with Johnny (who admitted that he can’t actually watch the fan-favorite moment on screen!) during an exclusive interview:

“Emily’s a pro…I’m less awkward [around her because] we’re homies…It’s just way more fun having your friends on set…[The kiss] wasn’t uncomfortable. You just turn your brain off and do it. We did it a million times because of the different angles and scenes, but I still don’t watch the last part of the video. I skip it every time. It’s just weird for me.”
