    If you like Gravitation, gender confusion, boys kissing, hillarious hysterical antics, random dancing and singing, impersonations, the cast of Gravitation speaking spanish, clean editing, and the lack of subtitles resulting from great divx capture, then this video will not be a waste of your time. MUI BIEN!

    I went crazy with lipsynch- and it came out GREAT. There were only a few mistakes, and only one of which I'm actually upset with, but overall it went very well. It's So much better than anytime before. This video contains mostly lip synch and less effects for two reasons; one, effects were unessesary for a video that looks fine with it's actions and lack of fancy stuff, and two, I wanted it to seem like the characters start singing this song for no reason in particular, and are getting a kick out of it. Especially Shuichi, who's the center of attention, and Yuki, who seems happier than we ever imagined he could be. Sorta a scary thought (though he does seem to get annoyed near the end for some reason. Maybe he got sick of it?). Oh, and by the way, Yuki speaking spanish is probably the best thing ever. I am not kidding.

    I purposely included certain sounds from the series for two reasons, as well; one, I wanted it to seem like everyone started singing this song and it just sorta melded with whatever they were doing at the time, and two, it increases the effect of funniness (Such as Sakano's "huh?" and the explosion. One of my favorites is when K first walks in and adresses everyone as a "lady", recieving glares and an amusing sound effect from Badluck as a result. This is right at the beggining).

    I am totally aware that Shuichi (and Ryuichi and Fujisaki in some cases) are not women. This is part of what makes the video funny. It's almost like they're making fun of themselves or I'm poking fun at Shuichi's uke-ish-ness: hence parody. I did not randomly pick this series for the song, I thought about it, and thought this would make the funniest video since truthfully no series *fits* this song. It's just a fun song that with lypsynch makes a comedic video... and besides, the "Shukira" pun was too much to resist.

    This could have been a character profile (despite being a parody) AMV, but I chose not to make Shuichi the only Shakira impersonator. I wanted the other characters to be included as well, and the seemingly random switching between them allows me to show even more interesting or fitting scenes. Especially literal scenes to represent an abstract action, that's one of my favorite things to do. Muahaha!

    I worked hard for roughly a month on and off on this video, so I hope you enjoy it... and since I have to go, this is all I will say about it for now, besides bestowing wonderful lyrics upon you. Adiós!

    Ladies up in here tonight
    No fighting, no fighting
    We got the refugees up in here
    No fighting, no fighting

    Shakira, Shakira

    I never really knew that she could dance like this
    She makes a man wants to speak Spanish
    Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
    Shakira, Shakira

    Oh baby when you talk like that
    You make a woman go mad
    So be wise and keep on
    Reading the signs of my body

    And I'm on tonight
    You know my hips don't lie
    And I'm starting to feel it's right
    All the attraction, the tension
    Don't you see baby, this is perfection

    Hey Girl, I can see your body moving
    And it's driving me crazy
    And I didn't have the slightest idea
    Until I saw you dancing

    And when you walk up on the dance floor
    Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body, girl
    And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
    So you can keep on taking it

    I never really knew that she could dance like this
    She makes a man want to speak Spanish
    Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
    Shakira, Shakira

    Oh baby when you talk like that
    You make a woman go mad
    So be wise and keep on
    Reading the signs of my body

    And I'm on tonight
    You know my hips don't lie
    And I am starting to feel you boy
    Come on lets go, real slow
    Don't you see baby asi es perfecto

    Oh I know I am on tonight my hips don't lie
    And I am starting to feel it's right
    All the attraction, the tension
    Don't you see baby, this is perfection
    Shakira, Shakira

    Oh boy, I can see your body moving
    Half animal, half man
    I don't, don't really know what I'm doing
    But you seem to have a plan
    My will and self restraint
    Have come to fail now, fail now
    See, I am doing what I can, but I can't so you know
    That's a bit too hard to explain

    Baila en la calle de noche
    Baila en la calle de d�a

    Baila en la calle de noche
    Baila en la calle de d�a

    I never really knew that she could dance like this
    She makes a man want to speak Spanish
    Como se llama, bonita, mi casa, su casa
    Shakira, Shakira

    Oh baby when you talk like that
    You know you got me hypnotized
    So be wise and keep on
    Reading the signs of my body

    Senorita, feel the conga, let me see you move like you come from Colombia

    Mira en Barranquilla se baila as�, say it!
    Mira en Barranquilla se baila as�

    Yeah
    She's so sexy every man's fantasy a refugee like me back with the Fugees from a 3rd world country
    I go back like when 'pac carried crates for Humpty Humpty
    I need a whole club dizzy
    Why the CIA wanna watch us?
    Colombians and Haitians
    I ain't guilty, it's a musical transaction
    No more do we snatch ropes
    Refugees run the seas 'cause we own our own boats

    I'm on tonight, my hips don't lie
    And I'm starting to feel you boy
    Come on let's go, real slow
    Baby, like this is perfecto

    Oh, you know I am on tonight and my hips don't lie
    And I am starting to feel it's right
    The attraction, the tension
    Baby, like this is perfection

    No fighting
    No fighting
