And this one is just entertaining and lovingly done retro:

It's a nicely earwormy song, and I'm tickled by the retro video. Aside from a very few camera cuts and the actress' outfit, it's a dead-on take of a very late-80s/pre-grunge-90s indie rock video, even down to those directors who loved to keep the cameras sweeping around for no real reason at all.

(It may have too much of a coherent plot, though. :D)

That's Bartok's String Quartet #3 at the beginning of the video! I've actually played that one.

Strange, as a junior high kid I remember thinking the video was pretty hokey, but I find it fairly entertaining now and appreciate how far outside the Stones' usual Undercover was.
