Music Video Deconstruction: Deja Vu

Artist: Inna ft Bob Taylor

Song: Deja Vu

Date of Release:  Summer 2009

The music video for "Déjà Vu" was shot in early 2009 in Constanţa showing Bob Taylor performing in a club. Inna did not take part in the filming and does not appear in this video.[5] For the commercial release of the song in Europe, an alternative video has been released featuring Inna. It uses footage of Inna's photoshooting in Nessebar, a major seaside resort on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria.[8] This video was later edited for the U.K. release and is credited as Inna featuring Bob Taylor. On October 1, 2010 the music video was released to U.K. music channels to support the digital and physical release of "Déjà Vu".[9]

The video is filmed in two locations, a party and on a boat. 
All the women in this video are wearing very little clothing this brings in a male gaze which is very common convention in music videos that the girls are usually attractive and wearing little clothing. 

The opening shots are focused on Inna's body and there is a wide shot variation showing various diffrent parts of her body.
In the club sequence a girl in a orange dress is the main focus, the orange dress makes the girl stand out even more in the club from others and the backing dancers in pink bra's


  1. Harry, I've emailed you with feedback about plagiarism - once you find useful material written by others, you need to read it, note any useful points, highlight any quotes you want to use, but fundamentally this is all about HARRY's analysis, not some Wiki-writer.
    The fact that you haven't even embedded the video makes it questionable whether you've even seen the video!
    You've clearly got a good ability to deconstruct media texts when you apply yourself, so lets see that ability fully evidenced here!
