The video’s product placement is of Adore Me, a lingerie company — appropriate for this no-pants (and pool) party that Iglesias and Pitbull are crashing. Skrillex makes a cameo as a DJ, although he’s hard to spot among the shaky, Blair Witch Project-style close-ups of girls climbing over each other, fawning over Pitbull and forming twerking dance circles.“I Like It” video, only ramped up by glow sticks, whipped cream and an outdated Lil Jon reference. (Yeah, “Get Low” happened in 2003.) It’s kind of a headache, but as the viewing public will likely say, “Life’s a party. Crash It.” Iglesias’ tenth album, Sex + Love, is out March 18; for now, watch the “I’m a Freak” video up top.
