Promo video for Pulp's song They Suffocate At Night, taken from the album Freaks. This rarely-seen film was not included on the Hits DVD.

"This was a leap into semi-professionalism. It was made by someone who claimed to have done the lighting on Chariots Of Fire, which impressed us a great deal at the time. In typical Fire fashion we could only afford one roll of film, so he had to keep winding the film backwards and forwards for different bits of the song. I constructed the set in an abandoned warehouse across the road from the factory I was living in at the time. I converted an inspection pit into a kind of sunken bedroom, then filled about 200 freezer bags full of coloured liquid for another bit elsewhere. For some reason there was a horse skeleton in the building so that ended up in the film too. I haven't seen this for years, but I remember being quite pleased with it at the time. My sister Saskia and a friend called Steve Genn played two lovers and we kind of watched. The filming went on 'til about 4 o'clock in the morning and at the end of it the band split up. What a great evening." - Jarvis Cocker.
