This video is so simple that Madonna’s one outfit change involves taking off her leather jacket and sunglasses — and Cee-Lo and his sparkly muu muu are nowhere to be seen. Instead we get a contortionist dancer, a hipster shirtless type wearing flag shorts, and a gas station, all shot with some sort of Instagram-looking filter (of course). It’s the Williamsburg (Brooklyn) Riviera.
But it gets more interesting. Promise!
First, Madonna’s givin’ us all her cleavage, which feels a little important in an age where fashion designers won’t.
Less important, but still notable, was the requisite modern diva display of the rock-solid engineering of her leather crotch, which reveals nary a stray vagina.
But the best part of the whole video? The extras:
I think the dude in particular has pretty spectacular style.
It’s like he took everything offensive sold in mall kiosks in the southwest — reflector shades, boot necklace, rust-colored chenille shawl, colored bootcut pants — added a hookah and turned it into something really unexpected and wonderful. Him and two back-up lady wackies alone make the video worth it.
