The video was almost directed by Spike Jonze, who wanted the band to spend over a million dollars on a video in which they hung about a space hotel in masks meant to convey elephant aliens. The sense of anarchy is heightened when the cops — one played drummer Jimmy Chamberlin — show up with comedy moustaches, reinforcing the notion that there are no authority figures in this teenage landscape.

Yet the stunt serves serves a purpose in reminding us of the indelible power of adolescent freedom represented by the original, timeless video.
