So about that Robot movie, one of the things I loved about it, strangely enough, were the come-from-nowhere musical numbers.

This one was filmed at Macchu Picchu in Peru and is notable for a few reasons:

1) The sheer joy of it. Everyone is smiling. It's fun. Contrast that with your favorite rock god, who looks like he's about to have a coronary every time he rips into a solo.

2) The discreet, culturally appropriate sexual metaphors.
Come like a python and catch this deer
Add a dash of ginger and pepper and drink me like soup
I'm a tree and you're a woodpecker
It sounds strange to a city boy raised on Star Wars and video games, but I know exactly what she's talking about.
