What's the music video where the band members are wearing red garden pot hats? (more info inside)

Asked by Magical_Muggle (2165points) January 27th, 2017

So, this has been bugging me for a while, but I can’t find the answer anywhere.
I was talking to a friend about something, and this music video came up, neither of us could remember the name or for certain the band.
Basically, the main scenes in this clip (of the band) they are all wearing red hats that look like garden pots… I also remember at some point an old lady? (I know it isn’t much)
We thought it was a Men at Work song, but I can’t find that video clip/song thus far. PLEASE HELP!

The hats are called energy domes. Devo wore them in a few videos, but the one for “Whip It” is definitely the most famous.

For whatever reason, I can’t get @Hawaii_Jake‘s link to work. It’s probably my device. But just in case you have the same problem, here is an alternate link.

Both links worked for me here in the UK.

Devo, without a doubt. Those guys were nuts.

Yup, Devo. Very underestimated band, even to this day.

@ARE_you_kidding_me It didn’t seem underestimated by the teenage girls when it came out. (At least, not the ones I knew.)
