"A Sorta Fairytale" was never one of my favorite songs by Tori Amos. I guess it was because of its girly and fairytale-like lyrics. The video premiered on October of 2002 and it stars Oscar winner Adrian Brody. That was way before he won the Oscar for THE PIANIST. The video is boring but also very weird. Tori plays a foot and Adrian is a hand. These things meet each other in the street and when they meet, they somehow fall in love. Adrian begins kissing Tori and she starts to get scared and runs away. They meet on the beach again and and they kiss more and they morph and become full bodies. Some people like this video because of its poetic qualities but I felt that it was too strange and silly for me.
The DVD has a behind the scenes look and an interview with Tori in were she explains what the video is about. That's a good thing because when I first saw it, I didn't get it and she describes the concept of the video and the song. Its a good thing that at least the video has something to do with the song. For a music video, it had some really good special effects and it kind of reminded me of the Aerosmith video for their song "Pink". This music video/song was just ok but not my favorites of Tori.
