As a pop video for The Beta Band, John Maclean's four minute taster has the guys dress up as astronauts and go to the moon, where they leap about like bears on springs and plant a Scottish flag on the surface. Suddenly, it turns out that this is the set for Capricorn One and the lads come back to their dressing room, looking suitably bemused.

You would have to be a serious fan to find this entertaining. At the beginning, there is the chance that a low budget space romp, in the style of Dark Star, is in the offing. No such luck. Perhaps, that's not what pop videos do.

It might have had more jokes.
