Keri Hilson - One Night Stand feat. Chris Brown (video)

I just watched the video for Keri Hilson's song and my first reaction to it was 'Oh Chris, I wish you had dyed your hair back before making this video".   But then I started paying attention to the song and visuals and actually, I really like it.   Side note and fodder for possible second post- I watched Dancing with the Stars late last night and saw Chris's two performances "Yeah 3x" "Forever" and I gotta say, huge thumbs up...especially since my esp must be working and he read my mind and dyed his hair back for it!

Anyway, so I am a little bit obsessed with Keri Hilson these days.   Her songs seem to be talking to me, about me, for me...and she is pretty too look at, dances well and has a pleasant voice.   A few things caught my attention watching the video.   At 2:20 ish Chris makes this awkward shoulder move and angry face that I replayed a few times- again, director's job to flatter his subjects but funny anyway.   Moving on, I really enjoyed the part where they were both in black (starts at 2:50 ish and again at 3:20 in trench coats maybe, I have to rewatch) and danced in sync.   Very cool, and reminiscent of Janet Jackson somehow.  I thought the awkward move at 3:13 where she had her foot up on the pole in the workshop and bent over and he was sort of standing behind her was...awkward.   Odd since both are so talented with regard to their dancing.   I blame the director for not making it a flattering angle.   Finally, just a girl's point of view- as hot as cars can be, no girl wants to get down in a workshop.   Think of the dirty cold concrete floor, the grease, the machinery...I mean, just no.   Having said that, it was as hot as possible given the setting- take a look and tell me what you think...
