Powerless (Say What You Want)
Powerless (Say What You Want) features Nelly trapped inside a box plastered with posters from which she seeks to escape. Her situation is a metaphor for the illusory commercial reality of her celebrity and beauty. The video was shot on various sets and dressed locations, and in a large customized box crate. Moneyshots designed the posters and graphics that surround Nelly in the box and added the transitions that transport Nelly back and forth between the imprisoning box and the poster environments. It was shot in Toronto.
