What would a video for a song called “Dynamite” be without a few explosions? Taio Cruz’s new clip doesn’t disappoint on that front, bringing plenty of incendiary special effects to accent his cheery dance-pop hit.

The video opens at an auto chop shop whose employees are all scantily clad ladies. Cruz entertains them as sparks literally fly from their welding equipment. Meanwhile, over at a club, we see someone being presented with a suitcase full of — you guessed it — dynamite. Ominous! Disaster is averted when the dynamite fuels a huge but harmless fireball behind Cruz as he performs at that same club. (At least, I think that’s what happens to the dynamite we saw a few moments earlier. The plot is a little hard to follow on this point.)

Check out Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” video after the jump (clip via MTV). How do you like it?
