Lovin’ it up when I’m goin’ down
I don’t think anyone has ever accused Aerosmith of being a particularly subtle band when it comes to the subject matter of their songs. That’s one reason why their fans love them. Love In An Elevator is one of their least subtle songs and, not coincidentally, it’s also one of their most popular.
The elevator operator is played by Brandi Brandt, who was Playboy’s playmate of the month for October of 1987. She had a brief acting career, one that largely consisted of this video and an appearance on Married With Children. Many years later, in 2014, she pleaded guilty to smuggling cocaine into Sydney and she did some time in prison in Australia. Fortunately, she received an early parole and is now safely back in California.
The video was directed by Marty Callner, who directed several videos for not only Aerosmith but almost every other popular band of the period as well.
