You remember Herb Ritts’ music video for Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game”: that black-and-white footage of Isaak rolling around on the beach with Helena Christensen, getting sand in all the wrong places. But did you know that there’s an entirely different video for the “No ahhhhhhh” song, directed by the one and only David Lynch? “Wicked Game” appeared on the soundtrack to Lynch’s campy 1990 film Wild at Heart, and Lynch made the video as an extra for the movie’s VHS release. Dangerous Minds has dug up that rarely seen clip, and depending on how you feel about seeing Isaak in eccentric suits and David Lynch hair, tender and intense scenes between Wild at Heart co-stars Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern, close-ups of flames, and the general suggestion that the song is more than just fuel for steamy make-out sessions, you might just prefer it to Ritts’ version.
