Yeah this video is really some incredible work and extreme talent from the stop motion team. Also looking at the credits, I didn't know the Quay brothers worked on this video. That would explain quite a bit why the stop motion in this is so fantastic. Yeah we can do computer effects, but showing something so immensely detailed that was clearly made by hand, just makes it so much more incredible.

I thought it was John Cusack for a second...

a song that isn't obvious about its message of sex. you don't see that these days. usually it's just ''ey gurl we bone now!'' this is clever about it.

I still love this video i remember seeing it in the mid 80s and i still love it
emmet donnelly
Man oh man how does one even get ideas for a video like this?! This is honestly something that could only have been created in the wonderful window frame of the 1980s! Even in our advanced, digital modern smart world a look and image like this could not be recreated! It simply wouldn't have that 80s look and spirit to it. Love it!😉.

motionraptor
I’m a 57 year old married man from Columbus, Ohio, been listening to Peter since his Genesis days and I can tell you as an American, we have some good music, but goddamn the English have better!\n\nPeter Gabriel was on a calculated mission to bring well-informed pop music to the world, and by god he done it. \n\nGreat artist. Great man \n\nBut most importantly...a great father. \n\nLong live peter!!!

One of the coolest videos from the 90's. I remember watching it on MTV (back when MTV played Music).

Fun fact: most 'videos' of the 80s and 90s were actually shot on film.
