Of particular note is the filming location of the video: the disused Beckton Gas Works outside of London was selected and the entire video was shot there. The damage to the buildings was done weeks prior to shooting, as the location had also been used for the filming of Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, particularly the Huế sequence.
