election day video

July 17th, 2001

Dearest Katester, I love Duran’s videos,and I was wondering if Nick could answer a question for me.Who are the two ladies playing a game with dice,in the ‘Election Day’ video?Are they actresses?
Keep up the good work, Catman

NICK ESPECIALLY REMEMBERS MANY DETAILS FROM THE “ELECTION DAY” VIDEO INCLUDING THE FACT THEY USED A JEAN COCTEAU LOOKALIKE. THE GRAPHIC ARTIST TONY VIRAMONTES (WHO PAINTED THE PORTRAITS FOR THE “SO RED THE ROSE” ALBUM COVER) HAD A CAMEO , SUPER MODEL LINDA EVANGALISTA WAS ONE OF THE GIRLS FEATURED (BEFORE HER BIG BREAK!) AND THE VIDEO WAS GOING TO BE DIRECTED BY RIDLEY SCOTT, WHO HAD TO PULL OUT AT THE LAST MINUTE TO COMPLETE HIS FILM “LEGEND” STARRING TOM CRUISE. BUT ALAS, NO ONE REMEMBERS THE NAME OF THE TWO GIRLS PLAYING CHESS WERE…IF YOU WATCH THE VIDEO CLOSELY , THERE ARE MANY REFERENCES TO OTHER MOVIES AND PAINTINGS WHICH TIED IN WITH THE ARCADIA PROJECT.
