And Who’s Shaking It All About

Posted by gauloises1 on February 19, 2010

Shakira-ing it all about! Yes? OK, no. Anyway, here’s the teaser for Shakira’s latest music video (she still does songs, apparently, although I’m not really too familiar with her body of work since the glory days of Underneath Your Clothes and so forth), featuring one Rafael Nadal:

Insert your own ‘small and humble’ joke here.

    I don’t know that the reaction the directors were going for was laughter, but I definitely laughed when I viewed this. Rafa = not at all a natural actor.

      But he likes to laugh with her and smile at her, both very naturally. And she with/at him, also naturally. So, it was not about wooden acting. These two really like each other, that’s why he was persuaded to do this.

        I like the moment at the end — his laughter, which seems so natural. But the “intimate” moments before that make me laugh. I love Rafa to pieces — and I’ve seen clips of just about every possible ad he’s been in so I’m actually somewhat surprised, as he did better than I was expecting.

        Can’t help but smiling with Rafa at the end…

      I have laughed every single time I’ve seen the clip. And I’m pretty sure when the entire video come out I’ll be laughing at that.

      Luv u Rafa, but no honey. No.

    LOLOLOLOL. Finally watched this. So adorable. But so, so, SO awkward. He doesn’t look like he’s done this before- and I’m NOT talking about acting =)

    Isn’t this how Enrique and Anna K got started? Didn’t she star in one of his music videos? Just saying….

    That was adorably hilarious. That smile/laugh at the end was so cute.

    But HA that was too funny to watch. Oh Rafa.

    I agree with Robert. Not awkward at all. Really, very sensual and tender all at the same time.

    Whodathunk? Actually, I would. These two have been rumored for a long time. And, I love it.

    G Girl! I missed your small and humble comment when I first read this. Good one! No wonder they get along. Hehehehe.

    By the way…she looks really small against Mr. Humble. The mind reels. (at least mine does)

      Hey Rafadoc 🙂 Do you know how much I love it when you come round this way?

      No offence intended with that awkward comment by the way. It’s just how it strikes me. But it’s almost unbearably sweet.
