How this music video lost "Best Experimental Video" at the 1984 MTV Music Video Awards is a shocker. The video has a simple storyline about a guy who saves a beautiful woman from an abusive boyfriend, but it is the presentation that fascinates. With a mixture of cel animation, stop-motion animation, and Claymation mixed into a 1930's backdrop - the viewer is treated to a very fun and cute adventure.
This music video is usually lost in the discussion of great 1980's music videos, but it is a gem nonetheless.
