** ''Film/WildWildWest'' from the 1997 remake of the same name. In the video, Jim West (Smith) pursues a BackFromTheDead Dr. Loveless, who has once again kidnapped Rita Escobar (Salma Hayek). Although the music video premiered months before the film came out, it is a semi-sequel to the film, and ignores most of the movie's ending (namely, Rita has apparently left her doctor husband, and Loveless has appeared alive and well without explanation).
