'It didn't transcend': Gal Gadot opens up about viral 'Imagine' video

The 'Wonder Woman' star split opinion with a star-studded version of the John Lennon's song earlier this year

Gal Gadot has finally addressed the highly criticised rendition of John Lennon's Imagine she performed alongside a gaggle of celebrity friends as the world went into lockdown.

Speaking during an interview with Vanity Fair on Tuesday, the Wonder Woman star said she had nothing but good intentions when making the video, which many around the world deemed cringe-worthy.

“Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it’s just not the right good deed,” she said. “I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.”

The video was posted on March 18, and featured a number of A-listers, including Sia, Natalie Portman, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell and Jimmy Fallon. “This virus has affected the entire world, everyone,” she said in the clip. “It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, we’re all in this together.”

The video was blasted as tone deaf, given that the virus was having a greater impact on poorer communities.

At the time, comedian Ricky Gervais said: “You can see in their eye – ‘I could cry at the beauty of my personality, I’m just so beautiful for doing this’ and everyone sees that – we get it.”

Gadot said she was inspired to make the video after seeing a viral clip of an elderly man in Italy playing the song for his neighbours as the country went into stay-at-home measures. “I started it, and I can only say that I meant to do something good and pure, and it didn’t transcend,” she said.

The interview was released just days after Gadot was announced to be playing Cleopatra in an upcoming blockbuster, something she is facing a whole new wave of criticism for by people claiming the role is being "whitewashed".

FFP EXPLAINED

What is Financial Fair Play?
Introduced in 2011 by Uefa, European football’s governing body, it demands that clubs live within their means. Chiefly, spend within their income and not make substantial losses.

What the rules dictate? 
The second phase of its implementation limits losses to €30 million (Dh136m) over three seasons. Extra expenditure is permitted for investment in sustainable areas (youth academies, stadium development, etc). Money provided by owners is not viewed as income. Revenue from “related parties” to those owners is assessed by Uefa's “financial control body” to be sure it is a fair value, or in line with market prices.

What are the penalties? 
There are a number of punishments, including fines, a loss of prize money or having to reduce squad size for European competition – as happened to PSG in 2014. There is even the threat of a competition ban, which could in theory lead to PSG’s suspension from the Uefa Champions League.

Why it pays to compare

A comparison of sending Dh20,000 from the UAE using two different routes at the same time - the first direct from a UAE bank to a bank in Germany, and the second from the same UAE bank via an online platform to Germany - found key differences in cost and speed. The transfers were both initiated on January 30.

Route 1: bank transfer

The UAE bank charged Dh152.25 for the Dh20,000 transfer. On top of that, their exchange rate margin added a difference of around Dh415, compared with the mid-market rate.

Total cost: Dh567.25 - around 2.9 per cent of the total amount

Total received: €4,670.30 

Route 2: online platform

The UAE bank’s charge for sending Dh20,000 to a UK dirham-denominated account was Dh2.10. The exchange rate margin cost was Dh60, plus a Dh12 fee.

Total cost: Dh74.10, around 0.4 per cent of the transaction

Total received: €4,756

The UAE bank transfer was far quicker – around two to three working days, while the online platform took around four to five days, but was considerably cheaper. In the online platform transfer, the funds were also exposed to currency risk during the period it took for them to arrive.
