Dirty Dancing In The Cathedral

The Archbishop of Toledo, Father Francisco Ferro Chaves, has issued a formal apology in response to the backlash following the publication of an erotic music video filmed in one of Spain’s most prestigious cathedrals.

In the controversial video entitled “Ateo” (Atheist), Spanish rapper C Tangana and Argentinian singer Nathy Peluso are seen dancing in a sexualised manner within the gothic church’s precincts whilst being observed by various members of the cathedral staff, including a priest. In other scenes, C Tangana is seen pulling Peluso’s hair whilst later on the Argentinian, fully naked but for some opportune pixilation, holds up the decapitated head of the rapper, a reference to one of the paintings displayed within Toledo cathedral.

In a statement, the Archbishop said he was completely unaware of the project and its content.
