Rafael Nadal is one lucky man.
Not since Enrique roped Anna Kournikova into his ‘Escape’ video have we seen a tennis star in such a steamy music video.
Here’s three noteworthy points about Shakira‘s ‘Gypsy’ video:
1) I thought we’ve done the Shakira-in-flowing-black-dress-with-a-sunset-background before. Check the ‘Beautiful Liar’ video with Beyonce.
2) The famous Nadal derriere at the 0:54 mark almost steals the scene from Shakira‘s windswept dress.
3) The jury’s out on whether Nadal looked awkward canoodling or was it just loads of fun for both parties.
When I think of a gypsy-themed music videos, I think of Jennifer Lopez‘s ‘Ain’t It Funny’.
But Shakira‘s admittedly simple video actually complements the wistful, lazy Sunday arvo feel of the track.
And, not least of it, the balance of sexual chemistry and immaculate hair and make up keeps us watching ’til the end.
