Nelly Furtado attends a drum circle in her ’The Spirit Indestructible” video.
We’ve become re-obsessed with Nelly Furtado ever since she validated our love for extra-large hoop earrings. Now, we’re also having a full-on love affair with her brand-new “Spirit Indestructible” video. Expertly produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, the song speaks to Nelly’s perseverance, and the nature-set video caters perfectly to the song’s overall message of unbreakable strength.
Watch Nelly Furtado’s “Spirit Indestructible” video after the jump.
At the top of the clip, Nelly takes the stage for an intimate performance before she’s magically transported to a beautiful snow-covered mountaintop in Vancouver, B.C., where she soaks up the stunning surroundings. Nelly then switches into a sick gold leather jacket and leads a large group of shirtless drummer men to a beach, where they proceed to have a giant drum circle. (I love a good drum circle. Should I not have shared that?) After some hard-core drumming and a beachside bonfire, Nelly ends up back atop the mountain. The snow has melted away, and just as she stands victorious, she turns into dust. And sure, we totally appreciate the “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” metaphor, but it’s a damn shame to waste all that hotness! I mean where did that gold leather jacket go, for example?
