There are plenty of near-naked women in the Being Boring video. In fact you couldn't get a video that was more loaded with attractive young people from both sexes.

Anyway, if you're not satisfied just play Monkey Business while you watch Pornhub.
I would like to see full female nudities in a PSB video because we already saw full men nudities in a video (a bottom) and a single cover (a penis).

Only once in a lifetime!

In my point of view,it would be more awful,if the PSB would perform like Robbie Williams in "She`s Madonna" or like the singer of Erasure etc.....If Chris would wear these boots in the video,I would say uffffff,but they don`t..

And what was in the past? "Was it worth it?" "Winner" Even "I get along" was very "gay",but noone split up with the boys,because of their "gayness" .They know exactly,what they do.

Pet Shop Boys have never been shy of having Beautiful People in videos… not just the Bruce Weber stuff, but more generally… it’s just that they and their collaborators have had a much wider view of who those Beautiful People are… maybe.

Somehow the posts are getting even more tone-deaf and downright dumb.
I for one would've enjoyed a bit of make-up on Neil. An occasional breaking of character does wonders for them, such as Chris' dancing we're about to witness today, since he seems motionless 99% of the time.

Admittedly I’d sit through 1000 drag queens to see Chris dance again.

Chris, you and Neil can be seen dancing in the video for your new single "Monkey Business". The Pet Shop Boys are not used to so much dynamism.

Chris Lowe : ( laughs ) Isn't it? We haven't been in one of our videos for a while, and we just felt like doing it on Monkey Business. Precisely because this song is so relentlessly brisk, funky and danceable. I would have liked to train longer, but it also looks really funny.

I'll reserve my final judgement until I saw the whole thing, however.
You don’t have to be intolerant to not personally enjoy drag performances, but the breathtaking extent of unchecked privilege in a heterosexual male essentially questioning why his preferences haven’t been taken into account in a 30 second teaser clip for a video by two men from outside his demographic... f****** hell.
That's the point though. Some people WILL judge from a 30 second clip and in all likelihood draw the wrong conclusions about it as a whole.

I don't think anybody here is suggesting that is right though.

We don't want to associate with that kind of people, though. Do we?

Fair, and I'm sure PSB dont care to have them as fans either.

Also the beautiful female has been well represented in PSB videos anyway. Actually era videos all pretty much cover the bases and even with the homoeroticism of Domino Dancing the woman of the mens affections is a stunner.

The hetero male demographic of PSB fandom has a lot to be grateful for.
