Development[edit]

The music video was filmed along with Guerra in an elementary school, St. Patrick & Assumption/All Saints, in Jersey City, New Jersey,[6] it was directed by Jessy Terrero.[7]

Synopsis[edit]

In the story of the video, Iglesias and Guerra are guest stars invited to sing at a school. The music video simply starts when the school principal presents them to the students and they begin to sing. The video alternates between the stage performance and three vignettes that exemplify falling in love: a student in class contrives to get his friend in trouble so he can move into friend's seat, which is next to his crush and allows him to pass her a "Do you like me," note; an un-athletic student is pummeled at dodgeball and then rescued by a girl who likes him and has a killer throw; and a straight-A student who contrives to get sent to the principal's office because he has a crush on her. The video has the participation of Ugly Betty actress Ana Ortiz as principal Michelle Gomez.[7] The full music video was premiered at Vevo.com on May 21, 2010. Till now the video has been viewed by more than 130 million viewers on YouTube.[8] It is one of the most viewed Spanish songs on YouTube.
