A trial scene is presided over by a judge played in a cameo appearance by John Kalodner. The judge’s props were borrowed from director Robert Zemeckis, director of the 1980 film The yellow jumpsuit, worn by Hagar in the video, can be seen at the New Orleans Hard Rock Cafe. A stuntman was used for Hagar’s stunts. An exploding ramp was used to throw Hagar across the courtroom.
The stuntman for that video was Scott Howell.
