When you take a popular song and add an insanely bad video, you get ’80s gold.
I think it was Larry the Clark who spotted this gem. There’s no creativity here, no story, no theme.
This is my theory of what happened: the band showed up and the video’s director said, “Hey, we’ve got a picture frame and five acres of blue fabric. Just do weird stuff and I’ll keep the cameras rolling.”
Is there anything from the ’90s, 2000’s or today that even compares? (Note: videos by Adam Ant do not count, because that’s too easy.)
