I'm trying to play this song, but I can't figure out the strum pattern. I think it's some sort of reggae pattern and it seems really simple, but I just can't get it to sound right on my uke

thanks, ive done a little bit of chunking, but didnt realize thats what she was doing in the video. is the pattern down, up, chunk? or up down chunk? or something else? i just cant seem to make it sound right, im still learning how to hear and figure out strum patterns... also is there a way I could strum to make it sound similar without the chunking?
