Billy Idol - Can’t Break Me Down
Directed by Jason Trucco

Billy Idol's new music video for Can't Break Me Down presents an allegorical noir story of love gone wrong.

Taking a cinematic approach, the action is set within the nightmare version of one of Hollywood’s most dynamic movie scenes - the climax of Orson Welles' The Lady From Shanghai. Directed by avant-garde director Jason Trucco, the movement is choreographed (and partly performed by) Ryan Heffington, who choreographed Sia's explosive Chandelier, and also features actress/dancer, Izabella Miko.

Billy Idol plays the role of hero, standing in for the Orson Welles protagonist, the strong but unfortunate masculine lover who is caught in the web created by an iconic femme fatale. She is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms have ensnared her lover, played by Billy Idol, leading him into a compromising, dangerous, and deadly situation.
