File:"Rapture" - Blondie

Rapture was the first rap video ever broadcast on MTV. Set in the Upper East Side, the "Man from Mars" or "voodoo god" (dancer William Barnes in the white suit and top hat, who choreographed the video) is the introductory and central figure. The final shot is a one-take scene of Debbie Harry dancing along the street, passing by graffiti artists, Uncle Sam, a Native American and a goat. Fab Five Freddy and graffiti artists Lee Quinones and Jean-Michel Basquiat make cameo appearances. Basquiat was hired when Grandmaster Flash did not show for the filming.
