Music videos[edit]

Two official videoclips were shot for the single, both promoted on TV. One of the videos is about a man dancing in a train trying to get a woman's attention; he dances all the road and makes different things until everybody starts dancing and the woman joins him.[5] This version was directed by Pablo Casacuberta. The other version was directed by Picky Talarico, it shows a tango and electronic party.[6]

The official videos and a video from a live performance in Poland[7] have been released on the iTunes Store.[8]
