(HQ digital stereo remaster) Before anyone accuses me of fraud, this really is the official music video released in Australia for "King Of Pain". It was shown on the iconic ABC music programme "Countdown" on 11 March 1984. It is as an edited version of The Police's album promo film "Studies In Synchronicity". The ABC's "Countdown" was so powerful in the music industry in the '80s that it alone could make or break songs and artists - no video, no promotion, no chance. So A&M had little choice but to put this together in order to promote this song in Australia, the fourth single from the "Synchronicity" album. That makes it an official music video. I don't know if it was shown anywhere else in the world.
