Music video[edit]

The 1986 music video (directed by Godley & Creme)[1][2] is a simple animatronic version of Reed miming along to the music. During the final verse, gloved human hands violently tear away at rubber and plastic parts of the robot, revealing wires and parts.[3] The music video was later featured on an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head.
