A new approach to journalism

What’s in Gal Gadot Imagine video?

The controversial video featured Gadot along with stars including Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, Zoë Kravitz and Jamie Dornan each singing a line from John Lennon song Imagine intended as a statement of solidarity at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Her post was criticized as tone deaf, highlighting the apparent disconnect between lyrics such as “imagine no possessions” warbled from multimillion dollar mansions while hundreds of thousands lost their lives, relatives, jobs and homes.

In a recent interview she explained, “I was seeing where everything was headed. But [the video] was premature. It wasn’t the right timing, and it wasn’t the right thing. It was in poor taste.

“All pure intentions, but sometimes you don’t hit the bullseye.”
