Produced by Th2ng – which has worked with Burton on many of his film’s title sequences – the video was shot in various locations in Blackpool and features Roberts playing a man obsessed with a female film star (Ryder). It was inspired by the song lyrics and, apparently, a 1935 American horror film called Mad Love.

This is the second time Burton has directed a music video for The Killers – he directed the promo for Bones in 2006.
