A straight-laced librarian is driven into a lustful frenzy by Wainwright's multiple personalities, including a "debonaire" man wearing a fedora, a woman (Wainwright in drag), and a "drugged-out Sonic Youth-obsessed dope fiend." The librarian lip syncs to Rufus Wainwright's lyrics throughout the video and by the end she is lying in the bed dressed in a lace corset, having succumbed to the passion exuded by Wainwright's characters.

Wainwright said of the video: "It features the two of us [Helena Bonham Carter] being naughty in the library... We have been friends for years. Not only is she very beautiful, very glamorous, but she is also incredibly funny... At the end of the video she is basically wearing a bra. So I very much appreciate her friendship for furthering my career." See more
