Exposed is the 1987 long form music video released by the American rock band Kiss. This was the band's second home video release. Exposed is based on an interview with the members of Kiss (almost exclusively Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley) and is interspersed with music videos and live concert clips from throughout Kiss' career, until the album Asylum. The conceptual footage was filmed at Gray Hall, a mansion in Beverly Hills, in August 1986.[1]

A follow up was planned and almost 5 hours of footage was filmed during the first week of Crazy Nights World Tour, but it was shelved for unknown reasons. The footage leaked to the bootleg circuit and is called "eXposed II".
