"Let Love Be Your Energy"

I've been in quite a chipper mood recetly (Hi K x), so I thought I'd share the mood by digging out another music video that makes me happy.

Robbie Williams' "Let Love Be Your Energy" is quite an upbeat song, with a nice dip just before the end, followed by a triumphant key change with fanfare at the end. The video, mainly an animated Robbie running, is also quite amusing as he dallies with a number ladies before finding the right one for him.

And those of you in the UK and USA that have seen the video probably chuckled at the very twee ending that is subverted in the last few seconds by an eagle.

If you haven't, you can watch it here. Go watch it before you carry on reading. I'll be right here ;)

Back again? Good wasn't it?

Now imagine my surprise when I found a version labelled "uncensored plus out-takes".

The ending is completely different! Instead of running up the mountain, embracing, and plummeting to a heart shaped spalt, Robbie and his dream girl strip off, and embrace naked to a background of erupting volcanoes (very subtle lads!).

And the out-takes at the end are very funny (and quite painful!) Take a look:

CAUTION! Contains animated dangly bits, and a few rude words!

Hehe, the second outtake running up the mountain did make me laugh out loud. (I refuse to use the acronym for that by the way).

Never been a big fan of Robbie, Its the attitude thats always put me off I think . But I like the video. Nifty. Says enough about stages of relationships without the music turned on which can only be a sign of film making.

Oh yes. Very good reasons for chipper-ness!

You'll have to make do with cryptic for a while though, I'm being coy and shy :)

@Stuat: Could you please phrase your request in the form of a question?

There's something very wrong about watching cartoon characters getting it on. Which isn't to say I didn't watch them, because clearly I did. But imagine Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny in the throes of...I'll stop there.

PS My 'word verification' to leave a comment is 'curgran', which sounds like the beginning of a Newman and Baddiel gag.
