Conchita Wurst wants all her fans to know they are unstoppable. Well, Conchi baby: the same goes for you!
The official video for “You Are Unstoppable” dropped this morning and it proves once again that Miss Wurst won’t be silenced. It’s a cinematic wonder shot in black and white, and it conveys Conchita’s message of perseverance and self-belief so well. There are no props or fancy backgrounds. It stars Conchita and just one other female — and it works. The simplicity lets the song live and breathe, just like Conchita’s Eurovision 2015 performance.
Conchita Wurst: “You Are Unstoppable” video
It opens with a woman in turmoil, wrestling with herself in a sand pit. She embodies the pain of self-discovery which see in Conchita’s lyrics.
Sometimes it’s just gonna hurt – yeah
But you gonna live and learn – yeah
You’re stronger than you believe you are
You are unstoppable!
As the song progresses we see Conchita bathed in dark light, preaching for her brothers and sisters to keep on moving. At times she is drenched in water Ruth Lorenzo-style, which hints at “diving in”.
So take a breath and just dive in
Keep on climbing
Scars are a part of you
We can learn to understand
Carry your heart in your hand…
And when she does the actress floats up from the sand through the waves to the surface where she can breathe more freely. By the final minute Conchita has risen to the heavens. She bares more than her soul: We see her bangin’ body which is as smooth and taut as this finely edited video.
