I’ll let Anastasiya Gnedinskaya of MK.ru explain.
Alexander Ovechkin will be in the next Katya Lel music video. Shooting will begin today, September 3rd. The plot of the video is centered on a relationship of a young couple, and, according to the producer of the video, Sergey Tkachenko, it will contain “unusual and somewhat provocative images.” The main male character in the video will be played by Alexander Ovechkin.
“We have been friends with Katya for a long time,” commented Ovechkin. “I liked the song, and the main idea of the video, so I gladly agreed to participate in it.”
The song and the video will debut in the fall. Katya admits that the new work will be a birthday present for herself – in September the singer is celebrating her 40th birthday and 20 years of singing career.
“My whole life has been connected with performing art,” said the singer. “It’s a great pleasure for me that I can celebrate such important milestone by doing what always brings me a great deal of pleasure – a new song and a video. And, of course, the fact that Sasha accepted our invitation to make this video is a special gift for me.”
This will not be a show business debut for Ovechkin. Two years ago he was in a video “Champion” produced by Russian rapper Sasha Belyi.
This is not Katya’s first music video with a hockey player. In 2004, she shot scenes with Pavel Bure in a phone booth during the lockout.
Our hope is that Ovi can best Alex Radulov’s performance in the video he shot with Nyusha, “It Hurts.”
Radulov appears at 1:25.
Yes, watching Rads feigning emotion does hurt.
Ovi’s caption translated: “very good picture!))) with Katya and Arthur” (Phoyo: @a0gr8)
