"I had no idea about videos, none of us did. I had just bought a brand new pair of red Doc Martens boots which cost me fifteen pounds, a lot of money back then. There was a scene where the director, Meiert Avis, asked me to spash though a puddle. I said,"I'll get my new Docs wet." He said, "Yeah, well that's what we want for the scene." I told him "Forget it." I wasn't getting the boots wet."
- Larry Mullen Jr. about the video to 1982's 'A Celebration'.
