At long last, here’s the first look at the official video for Madonna‘s new single, “Celebrate” (which, by the way, implements the Benny Benassi mix of the song.)
The good news:
+ Madonna looks good and/or ‘fit.’
+ In the only sequence actually worth watching, Madonna disrobes Jesus ‘Christ’ Luz, chews him up, and then spits him out like yesterday’s 22-year-old Brazilian news. It is almost hot.
+ Paul Oakenfold has not made the official video cut. Apparently there will be a ‘fan edit’ in the near future with clips of her fans, which I’m assuming will also include his literally terrifying cameo.
The bad news:
– The video for “Celebration” is not really as much a celebration as it is a semi-low budget ‘club scene’ production filmed with using a very hi-budget camera technique over and over and over again.
And that is the summation of the video behind one of the top candidates of Single of ’09.
