Video Review: B*Witched “C’est La Vie”

Edele, Keavy, Lindsay and Sinead sit on the their backs in a circle, staring up at the sky in the field. They perform a routine in the patches of grass, avoiding the flowers as they jump up and down. Sinead rests her hand underneath her chin as she lies on the grass. Lindsay lies on the grass and pets her dog.

They talk to a young man sitting in his tree house. Keavy tosses some magic sprinkles up to him. Lindsay wrinkles her nose. As he stands on the grass, he smiles as they dance. The young man kisses Sinead on the cheek. They chase the young man around the field. They tie him to the tree with some rope. He screams as a bunny hops towards him. Red lips mark his face.

As he bites on a flower, they spray him with a hose. Lindsay ruffles his hair.

They roll on the grass and perform a jig. They link arms and dance together in a circle. They lie on the field in a circle again.
