All Hells Breakin Loose Video

If only they still made music videos like this one. Great work all around. This video was actually choreographed by Norm Beauregard, who used to run the Cumberland Company. I took acting and stage combat classes there for a couple of glorious summers. So if you think about it, I'm kind of like an honorary KISS member. I believe he also directed Motley Crue's Too Young to Fall in Love, also totally kickass.

You'll notice that the "street hustler" in question is actually a midget. Paul says "I just looked at him, I kind of laughed, I said HEY MAN! I AM COOL! I am the breeze". It's not very nice to laugh at midgets even if they come up to you and say "What be this and what be that?"

I love how the opening scene finds the boys finishing up a fight, as if we've just stumbled onto the end of a much larger story - kind of like the opening scene of any James Bond flick. I think this video represents KISS' need to re-establish themselves as tough guys. Did you notice that you only see Vinnie close-up for 3 seconds altogether? Really, I counted. Eric's in it even less. What's great about this video is that it captures everything that's important to KISS, scantily clad girls, booze, and scantily clad girls drinking booze. Deeper analysis suggests that this video represents Paul's ongoing attempt to convince us that he's not gay (e.g., "Look, I'm tough!"). However, as Johnnysweatpants noted, picking on a midget does not make you tough, it makes you kind of, well gay. Also, where have I seen these exact fights before, the style looks so familiar. Oh yeah, in a little movie called KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park.
