When it came time for Lucas Jatobá to leave Barcelona for a new life in Australia, he decided to say thank you to the city and its people that he had enjoyed so much
Jatobá says ” I´m Brazilian and I have been really happy living in Barcelona in the last three years so I wanted to say goodbye in a special and different way. So I made a video with a message that could be shared with everyone.”
There’s a back story to this: Jatobá originally made the video with just seven tickets but he had used a song that he didn’t have rights to and so had to take it down after only three days online. “Some days later a Spanish website (Atrapalo.com) contacted me and offerred me a donation of 250 tickets to the theatre. Of course I took it and made the video again, in January, one week before moving to Sydney, Australia. Searching for a new song I found this Canadian singer called Jessica Allossery and she gave me the rights of her beautiful song Change the World.”
Yes, it all feels a bit like a mobile phone ad, but sweet gesture, no? Oh, alright then…
