Sting 1983, hand-drawn behind the scenes of the MTV video by The Police of “Every Breath You Take” video, age 32.
The music video (directed by duo Godley & Creme) was loosely based on Gjon Mili’s 1944 short film Jammin’ the Blues.
Shot in black-and-white with a navy blue tint, the video depicts the band, accompanied by a pianist and string section, performing the song in a darkened ballroom as a man washes the floor-to-ceiling window behind them.
Sting performs his part on upright bass rather than bass guitar. In October, 2022 the video surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube.
