A very elaborate music video was created to accompany the Innuendo single, combining stop motion animation with live action and digital mask replacement and featuring plasticine figures reminiscent of the album artwork in a detailed miniature cinema set. The band members only appear as illustrations and images, mainly taken from earlier Queen music videos (such as “The Miracle”, “Scandal”, “Breakthru”, “The Invisible Man”, “I Want It All”, and clips from “Live at Wembley Stadium 1986”), on a cinema screen in the same manner as in the film Nineteen Eighty-Four, with Mercury drawn in the style of Leonardo da Vinci, May in the style of Victorian etchings, Taylor in the style of Jackson Pollock, and Deacon in the style of Pablo Picasso. It also featured a montage of historical images and photographs. The video won production company DoRo (who also produced the videos to all other singles from the Innuendo album) a Monitor Award for Best Achievement in Music Video.
Here there are some slides in 35mm format in high resolution from the original videoclip.
