Most people credit this band for making MTV a thing to watch. The band understood the marketing theory of making a great video to help sell a good song to a willing public......well, this video in no way proves that theory.
It tries...it really does, but I think the whole video suffers from a touch of what I like to call....Overacting!! Simon Le Bon, who, I will admit, only has to sing along with the song while looking like the teen heartthrob that he was, totally misses the mark here. He must have thought that their whole career is resting on this one video, 'cause man, is he acting his ass right off the screen while he poorly lip syncs to his own song.
Take a moment and watch this lowlight in their stellar video career. And ask, What We're We Thinking??
Here's Careless Memories.
