23 years before she made history as the first woman to win the Oscar for Best Director, Kathryn Bigelow directed this video for New Order.
The video features the members of New Order as you’ve never seen them before. With the band’s long hair and the codpieces and the explosions going off in the background, you might think that an aging glam metal band is trying to rip off the British new wave sound. Instead, it’s the members of New Order, wearing wigs and poking deserved fun at the bands like Poison, Cinderella, and Great White.
While New Order performs, Bill Paxton runs through traffic and makes out with Femi Gardiner. Bill Paxton was everywhere in 1987.
