Storyline

The video for the song, directed by Julien Temple, featured lead singer Boy George on trial in a courtroom, with flashbacks to the Gargoyle Club, Soho in 1936 and the Dolphin Square Health Club, Pimlico in 1957. The jury was in black-face making jazz hands gestures. One band member, Mikey Craig, was not in the video, and was replaced by his brother Greg. Boy George wears a shirt with the Hebrew writing "Tarbut Agudda", a literal translation of the individual words "culture" and "association" in a grammatically incorrect order.
