I know that in the 80s and even the 90s it was considered bad form for someone who was not KD Lang to be out, loud and proud in Music Video form, but really? Did Elton John really make a video where the cold war-torn, tragically romantic couple looked like this:
Yes. It happened. Other things that happen in this video for some reason: Elton and Nikita go bowling. Elton wears many different caftans and tap dancer’s hats. Elton and Nikita slow dance at a weird European disco. They play chess. They watch a football game while Elton is wearing comically over-sized boots.
Horrific. You can watch it if you want, or you can just pretend that the video’s star-crossed lovers are these two lookers…and all will be right with the world.
No? Fine. But don’t say I didn’t warn you.
