Music Video of the Day: We Are by Ana Johnsson (2004, directed by Antti Jokinen)


Today’s music video of the day comes from the soundtrack of Spider-Man 2.

While Ana Johnsson and her band wake up with the neighbors and move the furniture across the floor, clips from Spider-Man 2 are shown.  This video highlights that, even more than as an action or comic book movie, Spider-Man 2 was originally advertised as being a love story.  Doctor Octopus was driven made by love while Spider-Man got a chance to show his love for Mary Jane Watson.  That might seem pretty simple and obvious today but, in 2004, a comic book movie trying to deal with actual human emotions was a big deal.

This music video was directed by Antti Jokinen, who has gone on to find great success as a feature film director in his native Finland.

Enjoy!
