Unbelievably however the camera had inexplicably shut off at the vital moment and carried straight on after the amazing occurence. Eerie, very eerie!!
The video was directed by Karen Lamond, the first time they have ever worked with a woman director (but not the last, as they went on to work with Sophie Muller, another Oil Factory alumnus).
We had to have 3 safety officers standing by for the fire scenes. We had to film it in just 2 takes.
In the first take the curtains went up in flames too quickly so we just dropped our cushions and legged it! On the second take we actually put out the fire so it had to be re-lit for the shoot!
In the cushion scenes we were sprayed with glycerine and water because we hadnt yet done the water spray scene in the corridor."
