The outlandish video was directed by Tom Kuntz and Mike Maguire, the same team that did the equally absurd video for "Danger! High Voltage." It's set in the Oval Office in 1983, with Tyler Spencer playing the role of a very gay Abraham Lincoln.
"They had read a rumor that Lincoln may have been gay or bisexual," Dick Valentine told Songfacts
. "hey were extrapolating gayness from Abraham Lincoln based on something they read."Q
both named it the video of the year.
