The video for Nelly Furtado's second single from her Spanish-language album, Mi Plan, is a restrained, mannered domestic drama. But frankly, I'm finding all this about as plausible as any given Nicolas Cage movie.
Just look at the first scene. Nelly Furtado makes her man some breakfast, and said man can't manage to tear his eyes away from his Twitter updates or his E-Trade account or whatevs. Well... I call you-know-what on this.
Dude! It's Nelly Furtado! And she made you a really good-looking breakfast! It's not some mole-covered gargoyle shoving a half-toasted Pop Tart in your face. Is there a man on this increasingly-less-green Earth who would turn down a delicious breakfast from Nelly Furtado!? I think we all know the answer to that.
I'm not even gonna get into the fact that this cat is apparently being a dog behind Nelly's back, while she sleeplessly lies in bad, awaiting his return.
Nelly Furtado, your Spanish-language music is fantastic. But, please, make more plausible videos.
