Lately I’ve been obsessed with Nicole Scherzinger’s new song ‘Try With Me’. Not because of the song, even though it is a pretty catchy dance song, but because of the video. I love it when pop acts do videos that take their inspiration from editorial shoots, and this one is an absolute beauty.
I am in love with this location. It’s called Las Pozas near the village of Xilitla in Mexico and it is the work of Surrealist artist Sir Edward James, when he wanted to created an Eden in the jungle. Ridiculously hard to get to, and something like 7 hours north of Mexico city, this is definitely on my wishlist of places I want to visit in my lifetime.

As videos go, this is definitely one of my favourites right now.
I really seem to have a thing for floaty ethereal dresses and locations and I’ve always wanted to go into a jungle since I was a small child, which is ironic considering I’m deathly afraid of snakes ad jungles are full of them.
So whether this dream will ever become a reality remains to be seen, but a girl can dream.
By the way wouldn’t a rave in a location like that be the coolest thing ever? Just imagine some seriously heavy beats and an amazing light show reflecting off the surrealist structures as the light disappears into the dark jungle. I have to give serious props to the director and cinematographer who came up with this concept.
Have a look at some of the screen-caps from the music video and tell me what you think of the location.
