We’re no professional prison window sex instructors, but it really feels like these two might be better off taking, like, two steps back and being able to look at each other properly – they’re getting shit-all tactile feedback from the glass and can presumably barely see one another. But hey, each to their own. In a behind-the-scenes clip, David can be heard directing the actors in a very to-the-point, hard-to-misinterpret way: “You’re humping the glass.”
Hang on: who arranged this gig? They must be kicking themselves by this point.
The teachers have been tied up with pink duct tape, which is one of the less-seen colours of duct tape. The chap on the left is also wearing a ball-gag. Like, yeah, it’s a big crazy fantasy world where metaphors are real, but that’s still false imprisonment and possibly actual bodily harm. These kids are gonna be in shiiiiit, yo.
If you freeze-frame, this guy’s boxers appear to be made by a brand called 'Balls Deep', which is rather rude. He’s having milk poured on him, which on a hot Californian day is probably briefly refreshing but an increasingly poor decision as the day wears on. In the immortal words of Ron Burgundy, it’s so damn hot. Milk was a bad choice.
The awesome outro a capella bit supposedly happened by accident, when the studio engineer accidentally forgot to fade out the vocals while fading out all the other tracks.
That’s it, that’s the end. Lovely work by everyone: a big, impressive, anarchic video for a big, frantic, ambitious track. Travis told MTV’s Making The Video upon wrapping: “I think we have an amazing video, and I think you’ll like it, and if you don’t, I hope you hurt yourself while you’re sleeping.”
