This video was made for the Duran Duran Genero TV contest and was chosen as a finalist.
Duran Duran's review:
"Great idea and the young girl is quite magnificent. This was a really tough choice. The narrative of the story takes the song back a generation further than I think we were picturing when we wrote the song, but the irony is that in reality it's not actually so many years difference. Very well cast and executed - and holds up to repeated viewing!"
