Way back in the primordial mists of 2010, Dani Martin, the lead singer of Spanish band ‘El Canto del Loco’ called in a favour and enlisted his celebrity chum and Spanish football’s then-golden boy, Fernando Torres, to appear in the video to one of his ditties.
Sadly, El Canto del Loco called it a day and stopped playing that very same year – much like Nando himself.
The title of the song in question is ‘Ya Nada Volvera A Ser Como Antes’, which translates as “Nothing Will Go Back To The Way It Was”.
Again…well, you can probably see what we’re driving at there.
Anyway, here it be – with Torres first appearing at the 0:54 mark playing “the other man” in a emotional, tortured tale of unrequited something or other…
Looks right at home on the MOR scene, does our Fernando…
“HELLO BIRMINGHAM SEA LIFE CENTRE!! ARE YOU READY TO SOFT ROCK?!”
To be perfectly honest, however, we definitely prefer his (slightly) later stuff…
