David Bowie‘s promotional video for “Life On Mars?” has been re-edited by the original director, Mick Rock.
You can watch his reworked version below.
“I had an amazing subject and an amazing song – this was the song that had turned me on to David – so what else did I need?” Rock told the Guardian. “David never looked like this at any other time. He never wore that suit again, never had that makeup on again. He never looked more amazing – like a space doll.”
