  1. This video is hilarious! I saw it a couple of days ago and realized that there are apparently quite a few of these literal videos out there...though I never heard of them before. The Separate Worlds by Journey one was pretty funny too, but this was the funniest one that I've seen.

  2. The original video was directed by Russell Mulcahy, who went on to direct tons of music videos, including several for Elton John. He also directed several well known films, and the pilot episode for the US version of Queer as Folk (and a few other episodes).

  4. I saw this a few days ago too and I thought that if any blog I read (a few of them) was to do a post on this video, that it would be this one. I think its very funny!

  7. LOL

    I must have been the gayest kind in the universe then

    This was the first music video I ever saw and knew from the subsequent wet dreams inspired by it that something was different about me.


    Yeah the video is cheesy looking at it now but the song is till one of my all time favorites

  9. What's sad is -- I saw this on MTV at a party the night it premiered, and we HOWLED at how gay it was, even then. Just as friends of ours had begun to catch that weird gay pneumonia and dying from it. I think it was the last party I thoroughly and completely enjoyed.

  13. There are a bunch of theses "literal videos" on YouTube but this is by far the best one. And the occasional beefcake just makes it better.
