LOS ANGELES — Adult performer Kelly Shibari is featured in a new music video from German rock band Rammstein.

The star apears several times in the song “Mein Land,” (My Country) that is set to premiere on Nov. 11. Her appearance is also being used as part of a promotional campaign.

Shibari said she was hand-selected for the role of a plus-sized beach bunny in the music video, directed by Swedish director Jonas Akerlund, who had asked for someone exuding the sexy confidence of current body-image icon and Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto.

Akerlund is best known for his acclaimed videos, such as The Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up,” Madonna’s “Ray of Light,” Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” and the feature film “Spun.” Akerlund has directed several music videos for Rammstein, including the controversial “Pussy.”

“I was honored to have been asked to be featured in the video,” Shibari said. “I may not be as iconic nor as extreme as Beth Ditto, but it’s always flattering to be compared to someone so confident and style-forward. The video shoot was a lot of fun and both the band and the crew were amazing — a great experience.”

In the video, she not only “helps” keyboardist Christian “Flake” Lorenz with his surfboard, but dances in several group scenes, including a mosh pit scene, all of which was shot on a beach in Malibu, California.

The “Mein Land” track is Rammstein's first single from their upcoming retrospective “Made in Germany 1995-2011” that will be released on Nov. 11 in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The international release date is slated for Nov. 14.

A full European tour has been scheduled from November through March 2012.
