Nelly Furtado raids the dress-up box

No-one seems to have noticed in this country, but Nelly Furtado's Spanish-language album Mi Plan is really very good. If you can find a copy, I suggest giving it a spin - the record's ebullient carnival rhythms sound fantastic in the summer sun.

Luckily, Nelly has sold enough copies in the rest of the world to justify the release of four singles, each of which have had amazing / barmy videos.

The latest is Bajo Otra Luz (Under A Different Light), whose title gives Nelly the excuse to put on lots of "hilarious" costumes so that we see her under a different light. Clever, eh?

Among the highlights are:

Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz
Nelly Furtado as Dorothy

The Terminator
Nelly Furtado dressed as a robot

A confused / foxy cavewoman

Lenny Kravitz

Mel C
La Mala dressed up as Mel C

That last shot is actually Spanish hip-hop star La Mala Rodríguez (me neither), who provides a talky bit in the middle. Good for her.
