Music videoEdit

The video begins in a room, where Shakira jumps out of a window into a grassland where eccentric people are present. She scratches the ceiling of a room, goes through dark rooms, riots, swims through a washing room. The video is also present in her hit, "Ciega, Sordomuda", which therefore sparked rumors some scenes were shot back-to-back with "Ciega, Sordomuda".
