"Watch Out" is a single by Alex Gaudino featuring Shèna, released on January 28, 2008. It is the third single released from his debut album My Destination. The second release topically coincided with UEFA Euro 2008, as the music video features a "video-game" football match played by raunchy women in spandex shorts/tops. The song samples Pigbag's "Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag",[3] while Shèna's vocals play a considerable part in track. The song was co-written by the Italian DJ and producer Jerma (uncredited).[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video starts with Alex Gaudino and his friend playing a virtual game of football (soccer) on an unknown video game console. The two men select a player type (all are female); Gaudino chooses blue tops and his friend plays Team Diablo in white tops, and they play in the Gaudino Arena. The game starts with a shot between one of the player's legs and doors then open behind her. They enter the arena wearing tight Lycra tops and shorts which are both short and revealing. The two teams start doing exercises including star jumps, stretching and bending of the legs, with some angles showing close-ups of buttocks and cleavage. The game eventually kicks off. Team Gaudino scores a goal, and later tackles team Diablo causing one girl to trip. A nurse is called out by the referee and she uses a "magic sponge" which miraculously heals the bruise. The play continues and team Diablo scores a goal. A player from team Gaudino then pulls on the shorts of a Diablo player, which causes the referee to give Gaudino a foul and Diablo gets a free kick. Team Diablo scores another goal and the game ends. Diablo then shakes hands with Alex Gaudino at the end of the video. The soccer players are played by Amy Perfect and Sophie Burles.
