This song’s a few years old, but the video is timeless. Shakira’s dancing and singing are simultaneously entrancing and unsettling. How is your leg moving like that, Shakira? You know what, don’t tell me. Let’s leave some mystery in your strange contortions.
In this video, Shakira:
-dances in a glittery cave
-dances in a cage
-wears a one-legged unitard
-wears a disturbingly flesh-toned leotard
-dances on a rooftop
-makes a lackluster but amazing wolf noise (“A-woo!”)
This is probably the best music video ever made. It baffles me that we don’t talk about it every single day. Just looking at Shakira makes me feel flabby and disgusting. Oh, and I can’t in good conscience not mention He-Wolf, the shot-for-shot remake of She-Wolf. Please just make sure you watch this. If it doesn’t make your day, then nothing will.
Also Shakira’s one-leg unitard would be a GREAT Halloween costume. You’re welcome.
