Madonna shot a groovy video this past weekend in Los Angeles for her new soundtrack song, "Beautiful Stranger," which was recorded for the Mike Myers spy spoof "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me."
Helmed by "Rush Hour" director Brett Ratner, the clip features Madonna as a brainwashed secret agent singing to a nightclub crowd that includes the characters Dr. Evil (Myers), his smaller counterpart Mini-Me (Verne Troyer), and a love-struck Austin Powers (Myers again).
In the video, Powers is on a mission to bring back the secret agent from Dr. Evil's dark side, and he falls madly in love with Madonna as he fantasizes about her while she performs.In one humorous dream sequence, Madonna is seen fawning over Powers while he's driving his Union Jack-topped Jaguar. In a more psychedelic episode, the pair frolics around while accompanied by a series of trippy graphics.
After the dream sequences subside, Madonna is seen leaving the nightclub with one of the featured characters.
As for the star-studded soundtrack and movie, the record will be out on June 1, while the film will be in theaters on June 15. (For more information on the soundtrack, see "'Austin Powers' Lures Scott Weiland, Flaming Lips".)
