Music Video of the Day: Victim by Bootcamp (1981, directed by ????)


On August 1st, 1981, MTV premiered. Over the course of 24 hours, 166 unique music videos were played on MTV. Yes, there was a time when the M actually did stand for music.

Following of replay of April Wine’s Just Between You And Me, the 61st music video to play on MTV was the classic video for Talking Heads’s Once In A Lifetime.  Amazingly, that well-remembered video was only played once during MTV’s first day of operation.

The 62nd music video to play on MTV was the video for Victim but Baltimore’s own Bootcamp!  This court ad jail-themed video was the second Bootcamp video to appear on MTV, following Hold On To The Night.
