Clever cinematography, freestyle dance moves, and a wacky sense of humor place this clip years ahead of its time. The imagery for the opening bars — the pendulum guitar, fingers on the fretboard — is so simple, yet delivers some of the most iconic imagery in NZ music video history. 

"The crowd at the end were on a "surprise" drunken evening, and one of the stops for their bus was a surprise visit to a video shoot. They had about 15 mins to dance their butts off, and then out they went ... t'was hilarious."
Phil Judd, April 09
