The song tells a story about a secret military plan to create a sound that is strong and horrible enough to kill people. Spoiler alert: nearly everyone dies.
The video conceptualizes the song plot and includes appearances from Dawn French, Hugh Laurie, Richard Vernon, Peter Vaughan and Del Palmer. Bush appears on screen as an orderly officer serving tea, as the sound creature and at the end entering a van. The video was banned from Top of The Pops because it was considered too violent.
