The video was directed by Toby Tremlett
, who mostly works on commercials. The clip did well on MTV and gave viewers a good look at the photogenic Kelli Dayton.
Tremlett told us: "'6 Underground' was a really early video for me. I think I had only really done three or four prior to it. I'd shot a video for Moloko's 'Fun For Me' a few weeks before, and was really lucky to have a chance to do such a great track as '6 Underground.' The band were really collaborative and supportive, even though for them it was their first real video.
I found the track really oppressive in terms of themes and I wanted to reflect that in a visual way. I liked the idea of these windows into small town life, where everyone appears normal to each other but has their own secrets and so we created these little windows into peoples private perversions that surrounded the set where the band performed.
I remember one poor guy who had to eat tinned spaghetti all day... a real trooper... and the paint in his room was a bit toxic, and he ended up vomiting everywhere and then went back to work. He was brilliant."
