Awhile back I had an idea to have some models play Duran Duran in a video, to get look-alikes and to style them like we were when we started out. But then I thought, Well, actually if we’re going to use models, why don’t we use supermodels whom we’ve all known for many years? I thought it was fitting that we all came up through the same period. There’s a little bit of an eighties feel to ‘Girl Panic!’ It references some of the sound we had back then, it just all seemed to marry very well. And when I brought the idea to the band, there wasn’t even a heartbeat, everyone said, ‘Yes, perfect!’ We started on a crusade to get the right girls. That’s where it got more complicated. They all have very busy schedules, and we also had fairly busy schedules. The director [Jonas Ackerlund] has a phenomenally busy schedule, and trying to coordinate it all was a task as complicated as anything that we’ve ever done.
