In the music video, directed by David Mallet, Angus Young explodes from a life-sized television set. He throws his hat, and it lands on a switch, causing it to flip. An intercontinental ballistic missile is launched, and on the screen is film footage of the Strategic Air Command in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The missile becomes a cruise missile, and travels across the world, whereupon it finally crashes into the Opera House in Sydney, during an AC/DC concert. Angus explodes out of the giant missile's warhead and does a guitar solo. At the end, Angus heads back into the missile's nose cone and leaves.
