The music video mixes shots of Clayton and Mullen mixed with footage from the film. It was directed by Kevin Godley, who did U2's videos for "Even Better Than The Real Thing
" and "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
." In several scenes, the camera travels through backs of video monitors that display scenes from the film and related elements, including shots of Clayton and Mullen. These were done using a motion control camera, which let Godley shoot the same scene over and over with different footage in the monitors, then tweak it in post to get what he wanted in the screens. The process was rather painstaking. "A shot that maybe lasted 10 seconds in the finished video took about four hours to shoot," Godley told Songfacts
. "Just the words "motion control" gives me f--king hives thinking about it."
