Not content with doing your average lyric video, Ricardo Montaner has gone the animation route for the visual treatment of his latest single "Se Desesperaba (El Carrito Azul)" (She Got Fed Up [The Little Blue Car]). The third single from his most recent album, Agradecido (Grateful), it's a colorful and bittersweet bachata about a loving husband who does right by his lady, only to be left behind for another man.

The Venezuelan singer-songwriter called on his wife of over 25 years, filmmaker Marlene Rodríguez Miranda, for the video. Though Montaner has incorporated animation into some of his earlier videos, this is the first time he makes a fully animated short film.

“I wasn’t expecting something so amazing," Montaner said in a statement. "Marlene’s idea struck me as a leap forward since I had never done anything like it. The animation is extraordinary. I wouldn’t be surprised if this goes down as one of my signature videos of the over 70 that I’ve filmed.”
