When I was a kid, there were several videos on MTV that creeped the hell (by which I mean scared the bejeezus) out of me. The first was "Icehouse"
by Icehouse/Flowers. Second was "Draw of the Cards"
by Kim Carnes. Both of those were directed by Russell Mulcahy
. (There was also "Ashes to Ashes"
by David Bowie, in a similar style but not by Mulcahy.)
There was a third one, and it was again in this style. I remember a man searching a post-apocalyptic landscape, a woman holding a large letter "Y" out to him, and, like, short people or something running around with stepladders on their backs? For some reason I recall this video being for "Waiting for a Girl Like You" by Foreigner, but I've found no evidence that this was the case (every video I've found for this song is just a performance video).
Nothing on Mulcahy's c.v.
rings a bell as far was what this may be, and the entry for WFAGLY
gives no clues.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? I would love to know what this video was and see it again! (Thinking I might should put together a Mulcahy FPP as well.)
