Default I've got mine video

I've been enjoying watching the UB40 collection DVD with my 2 yo son who is fascinated by it (good lad!). But my wife couldn't contain her laughter at what she called a wham-esque video for I've got mine. I must admit it is a bit odd! What was the story behind this? lots of semi-naked people dancing and some very dodgy tight trousers and shorts. Admittedly it was the early eighties but it does seem a bit of a break from the norm for the UBs at the time

Is that one not tongue in cheek (to go with the song?)

I hope so anyway!

My abiding memories of the vid are Mickey dancing on a rock while dressed as Jimmy Connors and being jealous of the guy with probably the world's best job,hosing the sand off bikini clad girls.Think it was filmed in Australia.

I guess the irony of it was lost on me, or maybe I was just spellbound by the tight trousers. I was loving the somersaults though
