What about all those weird robots lurking in Shakira’s music videos?

Weird robots have been discovered in the thumbnails of several Shakira clips, and if it’s part of some bizarre marketing campaign, you really have to hand it to her.

An eagle-eyed fan shared the strange discovery on Reddit: the thumbnail of the Colombian singer ‘Waka Waka (This Time in Africa)’ The music video looks normal at first, but closer examination reveals a robot hanging around in the background.

This wasn’t Shakira’s only vignette to feature a robot, with others quickly spotted in vignettes for “Hips Don’t Lie,” “GIRL LIKE ME,” and more.

Seriously, what’s going on? As of this writing, neither Shakira nor Vevo have publicly commented on the matter, but that hasn’t stopped fans from wildly speculating.

Some believe the mysterious bots signal potential NFT collaboration from the pop icon; others suggest it’s proof that Shakira is entering her “electropop” era, and the robots simply herald a new chapter in her music career. It would be even weirder if there was some form of “Mandela Effect” here, and weird robots have always been in Shakira’s videos.

Other fans have expressed concern over the singer’s account being hacked, which isn’t all that strange considering artists like Eminem and Drake had their YouTube accounts hacked last week. the list of persons concerned was even longer, with Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Lil Nas X and Harry Styles also being hacked. Although Shakira didn’t confirm if she was hacked at the time, it’s entirely plausible that she was also one of the victims.

We’ve grown accustomed as music fans to bizarre marketing strategies lately, but if Shakira’s new strategy to have weird robots lurking in the background of her music video thumbnails is intentional, it’s there -top with the most ridiculous.
