Because it's so good or so bad or so something else.
That's very creative stuff!
I think we need to talk about Bonnie...
Spin around, niiiiinjas….
I posted this before. I find it fascinating and fun.
No.. I actually think this is my favourite music video of all time. It's absolutely bonkers. It's literally everything and the kitchen sink. I would loved to have heard the pitch from the director or seen the storyboard.
"And here we segue from the twirling ballet dancing ninjas, to you running through the corridors of an empty public school. Then we will abruptly cut to some young athletic male swimmers in just their speedos being splashed with a bucket of water. Back on Bonnie in her diaphanous gown running barefoot through endless corridors, wind blowing. Then we abruptly cut to public school boys at a dinner table. As the music swells the dinner becomes a food fight. Plates and dishes everywhere. Then we intercut with Bonnie on a balcony dramatically giving it her all to the chorus, while young men in leather biker jackets and jeans dance a choreographed dance up the staircase beneath her. Cut back to some shots of Bonnie running again, candles flickering in the wind. Then the boys have magically transformed again into choir boys with strange glowing eyes like the Children of The Corn. One of then actually flies!!!!"
I would love to know the thought process that went into making this video. It's wacky, that's for sure, but I love it and the song!
I think it's brilliant and beautiful. It's a very haunting song.
I love the song and the video, but the video is bonkers.
Let's see how many times Alexis says Bonkers today!
It is bonkers but that is what makes it so memorable and amazing after all these years.
I can't decide if I love this or hate it?
I am leaning towards hating it.
The whole thing is mad but Nicki's verse at 3:42 is the best bit.
