Robyn Writhes in an Empty Gym While Pleading to "Call Your Girlfriend"

The video for Robyn's truly magnificent track (possibly the best from Body Talk, vol.3) is a simple one-take video where we see the electro pop artiste writhe around in an empty gym singing to the camera. The video is interesting enough, but not the direction I would have thought the video for this great song would take. Robyn isn't Catherine Zeta-Jones, nor is she that great of a dancer, but that's exactly her appeal -- she's a nerdy, sometimes geeky club kid, with a big heart and an incredible knack for singing the most astute lyrics. Did you ever suspect you would hear a song about stealing someone's boyfriend that was sympathetic to the one being dumped? But that's what Robyn does best, take ordinary situations that have turned clich├ęd in the pop world, and flip them on their head. What do you think about the video?
