Director Jay Dubin was recruited to shoot a music video to promote the Double Fantasy
album. On August 10, 1980, he brought his team to the Hit Factory studio and captured Lennon performing this song, along with "I'm Losing You
" and some rock and roll covers. The video project was scrapped after Lennon's death a few months later, and the footage has never been seen.
In our interview with Dubin
, he told us: "It never got released. He died. I got a lift back from John in the limo and he dropped me off. My fiancée, my wife now of many years, we're sitting there waiting for a table, and boom, John Lennon's shot. I said, 'I was just with him.' Simple as that."
Dubin does have a keepsake from the session, though. He added: "I have a complete audiotape because somebody left a cassette player going of the whole session. I got it sitting in my closet. I put it onto digital so it wouldn't get destroyed. I've just had it for over 30 years, just sitting there."
