Fly on the Wall (AC/DC Video)

: "For other uses, see Fly on the wall (disambiguation)."

"Fly on the Wall" is a video by AC/DC, released in 1985. It is named after their album with the same name. The tape comprised of a single music video of five of the songs from "Fly on the Wall", back to back. The visuals involved AC/DC playing at a bar while various shady characters interacted with an animated fly, much like the one on the cover of the album. The track listing is as follows:

#"Fly on the Wall"
#"Danger"
#"Sink the Pink"
#"Stand Up"
#"Shake Your Foundations"

tory/Plot

A thunderstorm rumbles across Brooklyn, where AC/DC is about to play. In a bar across the bay and the Brooklyn Bridge, a cameraman spy, nicknamed Super Snoop, walks in from the bar's back door, trying to walk slowly toward the band's dressing room. His job being to get photographs of the band for a local newspaper.

He finds the door half-opened, and takes a good picture, in this case, the camera pops loud and shines brightly. The popping sound gets the band's attention. Two guards behind the spy grab him, thinking he works for the Paparazzi. Photography is prohibited in the bar. The twin-coated guards throw Super Snoop out of the bar by the bay. An animated fly flies out of an empty can within the garbage that Super Snoop is thrown onto. The freaky picture-taker throws an empty box at one of the guards, and quickly runs off.

The fly heads inside the bar, called the "Crystal Ballroom.". Meanwhile, inside the C.B. (Crystal Ballroom), the MC known as Decadent Dan heads onto the stage, and introduces AC/DC to the bar by the bay. After his quick introduction, the band heads on stage and plays their song "Fly on the Wall."

The bartender nearby, is annoyed by the band's intro guitar sounds, and puts on earplugs. Outside, Super Snoop heads inside through the back gate. During the song "Danger," he is back inside. He takes a few good pictures of employees and AC/DC fans/customers, even a picture of the band as well. During Angus Young's solo, the grey-haired cameraman says and writes down explanations about the band to himself, but it is impossible to hear because of the solo.

After taking another picture, Super Snoop is picked up again by the same guards that threw him out before, and thrown out. The next song, "Sink the Pink," features a woman in pink. She plays a game of Pool with another guy. The woman wins, dances with the former champ.

The next AC/DC song, "Stand Up" is played. Super Snoop heads in the back door again. He takes another picture of someone, and laughs hysterically. Then once again, is thrown out again by the guards. Before heading inside, the guards look at the freaky spy, seeing him with his hands on his cheeks, crying.

Inside the bar, the last song, "Shake Your Foundations," is played, and everyone dances. This song gets louder and louder as the audience gets more into it. The bartender, however, finds the song very interesting, and quickly takes off his earplugs, and joins all the people in dancing. But, during the song, the bar quakes. Finally, with the bar quaking violently, spirit bottles start falling off the shelves behind the bar, the walls begin to breach and it quickly gets the people's attention. They all evacuate the bar. Super Snoop, trying to head back inside, is run over by the evacuees. The bar collapses, and AC/DC continue to play the song now fully exposed outside with the World Trade Center clearly visible behind them. Finally, the song is over, and the fly featured in the videos, flies away. One more song, Playing With Girls, is played during the credits.

This entire sequence (minus "Playing With Girls/Credits") can be found on disc 2 of the band's 2005 "Family Jewels" DVD compilation.
