A local buddy of mine sent me a link to the music video for Meatloaf’s “I Can Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” last night and told me to watch the entire thing. That was cruel on two counts: 1) It’s a Meatloaf song, and 2) it’s a SEVEN MINUTE Meatloaf song.
But he had a point, and that was to have me guess who was the famous director behind that video, and to be honest, as soon as I saw one woman lick the neck of another woman, I knew exactly who it was.
In fact, that same director is behind several music videos from the late 80s and early 90s, and they all look the SAME. They involve strobe lighting, heaving bosoms, pouty lips, frequently two women together, and lots of lingerie.
I’ve taken the liberty of screen-capping one image from each of his videos. Can you guess the director (you only get ONE guess, and it’s so obvious, the question is practically rhetorical).
