Odd Music Video

So, I was putzing about online, unable to sleep, and I came across this, the video for Princes of the Universe, the theme from the original Highlander. I was struck by something about this video - you have a film with all manner of music-video friendly images: sword fights, indoor lightning storms, buildings filled with demonic spirits, panoramic views of the Scottish highlands, and one seriously freaky villian. What scenes do they include in the music video? Why, scenes of the hero walking to work, sitting around in his living room, and meeting a friend in a park. No, really, that's what's in the video.

It's just...well, an odd choice.
