I got a text from my friend Tamar the other day, saying, "You wanna go to a Pitbull video shoot?" Hell yeah! I love Pitbull! I grabbed the Kodak and drove to a studio near Coconut Grove.
Some of the hottest women I have ever seen were walking around in bikinis, chillin' and posing for the cameras. They make money! There was a table with Skittles and ice cold Red Bulls, which I couldn't stop chewing and gulping.
The video itself was directed by a serious up-and-coming Miami filmmaker, David Rousseau. He directed Pitbull's "Calle Ocho," and he has also done videos with Lil Weezy, Enrique Iglesias, and others. Check out behind the scenes footage and an interview with him after the jump (at 3:00). Pitbull himself was in and out, it ain't easy being Mr. 305.
