I can't remember this one specifically, but I'll lay bets that every shot EVH is in, he's got an ear to ear grin.

It's got a dwarf (or a little person, depending on your sensitivities) in it. And a woman tied to a post.

W-w-why is everybody dressed like that? Is there a storyline?

From what I've gathered, the band wasn't keen on the prospect of shooting a video and ended up poking fun at the medium with "(Oh) Pretty Woman." DLR as Napoleon is rather funny, though.

It looks like an Adam Ant video!

Trivia: When the video first played on MTV (whenever the hell that was), they spelled the band's name "Von Halen" in the captions.

9 years pass...

It just occurred to me that when this thread was started in 2002, there was no youtube. How did we watch shit back then?

we relied on spotty memories, vh1 classic, and old vhs tapes rescued from our parents basements.
