#SPECIALAGENT INVESTIGATION

Answer the questions below in a comment on this video, along with your twitter @ name and your #SPECIALAGENT squad leader (if any) to receive a shoutout from Katja on Twitter! Make sure you follow Katja on twitter to be able to get the shoutout http://twitter.com/katjaglieson

INVESTIGATION TASKS:

1. When Katja’s sitting by the tree how many coins on her head?

2. The black feathers falling in the tree scene symbolize going through a spiritual initiation & growth as well as repelling negative energy & setting strong boundaries, just like the song itself (http://www.nataliakuna.com/feather-signs–colour-meanings.html). At what point (minutes & seconds) does Katja emerge as the symbolic representation of this transformation? (hint: the costume involves more black feathers!)

3. What shape appears over Katja when she emerges as the transformed and free Katja in her final costume with black feathers?

4. How many people are dancing with Katja in the rave scene?

5. What other big Katja music video were the girls in with Katja?

6. What Australian Aboriginal ceremonial meeting where Aborigines interact with the Dreamtime through dance, music and costume is the opening scene inspired by? (hint: do a google search on ‘Australian Aboriginal ceremonial meeting’)

7. In the Aboriginal bodypaint scene, Katja represents the Sun in Aboriginal Dreamtime story of creation, where the sun was a woman who emerged to give life to the universe and all of the plants and animals. The rays of light coming from her head represent that as well as the single light that appears to be the sun slowly bringing light & life to the Australian desert. The girls (children of the morning star and the moon, the ancestors of Aboriginals) play with the light as they come to life, but what are they actually holding in the scene?

8. How many times do we see the dancer Erik without his hat throughout the dance break and final dance?

9. What was the other dancer Joe wearing on his head?

10. At what point (minutes & seconds) does the Didgeridoo instrument that is featured in the song make an appearance?

11. How many total costumes/looks did Katja have?

Have fun!

RIDE THE WAVE lyrics

Oh oh

I can feel your energy
A power taking over me
In your light I feel so free
You can take me down
Cos baby I believe
In you and me

Lines so foul take a free throw
Eyes on me like a peep show
We flash in lights like a metro
Auras bright we the spectro

And when we dance all night
Thats when our hearts collide

Beat my drum til we’re both in time
When we align
Our bodies ride the wave
Beat my drum til we’re both in time
All through the night
Our bodies ride the wave

Do you wanna lose control
ANd give into this vertigo
Make you high when you’re feeling low
Baby take me home
So I can take you on
All night long

Take me out on your surfboard
Check it off like a home chore
Cos you and me we gone do more
All is fair in love and war

Cos when we dance all night
Thats when we come alive

Beat my drum til we’re both in time
When we align
Our bodies ride the wave
Beat my drum til we’re both in time
All through the night
Our bodies ride the wave

I’ll ride the wave,
I’ll ride the wave (you can jump on)
We swervin bae
I’ll drive you crazy (you can jump on)

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh

Feel me pulse
In your space
Fully charged baby
Turn it on
In the back
Of my Mercades
We connect
Move as one
Feel it vibrating
I bet you will
I bet you will

Beat my drum til we’re both in time
When we align
Our bodies ride the wave
Beat my drum til we’re both in time
All through the night
Our bodies ride the wave

I’ll ride the wave,
I’ll ride the wave (you can jump on)
We swervin bae
I’ll drive you crazy (you can jump on)

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
