I am pretty happy that Shakira took advantage of Rafael Nadal gorgeous body, even tho I would have love her to ask him to go full monty 😉 After all we’ve seen it and it’s pretty perfect [OHLALA HE IS NAKED! RAFAEL NADAL]
“Shooting this video with Rafa was a great experience, he is very sweet and made it easy and fun,” said Shakira. “He and I have so much in common — starting out so young in our respective careers and traveling the world — I felt this would translate the spirit of the lyrics in the song and I was thrilled he wanted to be a part of it.”
The video for Gypsy and “Gitana” (the Spanish version) were shot in Barcelona, Spain by Shakira’s longtime collaborator Jaume De Laiguana. The sexy video captures a flirtatious and playful onscreen chemistry between Shakira and Rafael Nadal who plays the love interest. The inventive mix of mandolin, banjo and sitar on “Gypsy” weaves a tale of a transient drifter. The video will debut worldwide on February 26th on Yahoo.com and MTV worldwide.
“It has been a great experience and I had a lot of fun doing it. I had some time in between tournaments and preparation and could not miss this opportunity,” commented Rafael Nadal of his role in the video. “Shakira, as always, was spectacular. Working with a woman as charming as her, well, it makes it a lot easier to tell the truth. It was great, very easy, she’s really sweet and that always makes the hours go by faster.”
