The song made its first appearance in the 1987 film Tin Men. Fine Young Cannibals portrayed a nightclub band in the movie, performing this song and three others (including the single's b-side "Social Security"). The film is set in Baltimore in 1963, and the song's retro-soul style is consistent with that setting.
The video features many scenes with motor scooters, both at rest and in motion as well as scooter culture. The scooters featured include stock scooters, as well as highly stylized scooters and minimalist cutdown scooters.
The song is currently in an advert for the Chevrolet Captiva SUV automobile in the United Kingdom. It was also used in the 2008 film Doomsday, starring Rhona Mitra, in a surreal scene involving the film's main antagonist.
