The video was directed by Mark Pellington, whose credits include "Jeremy
" by Pearl Jam and "Skyscraper
" by Demi Lovato. Set against a white background, Waters appears in a business suit - not the typical dress code of a dance diva.
"I'm not the type of person who likes to show a lot of skin, so back then I used to love to wear suits and jackets and jeans," she told Songfacts. "At first, they wanted to put me in glittery long gowns and I was like, 'No. No disco diva here.'"
The video has some striking imagery, including the gypsy woman behind a mask and a spinning umbrella emblazoned with the "la da dee, la da da" refrain.
In our interview with Pellington
, he said: "I love that song. She was lovely - she showed up, shot it, and did it. In those days, I'd just kind of show up and do it."
