Stone Temple Pilots - Sour Girl

Stone Temple Pilots - "Sour Girl"
From No. 4 (2000)

The video for "Sour Girl" features Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and rabbit costumes eerily reminiscent of the Teletubbies.

An episode of MTV's Making the Video featured "Sour Girl." The video was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Cinematography, as well as a Billboard Music Video Award for Best Modern Rock Track. Unfortunately, it did not win either award.

The story I had heard was the video had been inspired by Weiland's time in jail when all he would watch was the Teletubies and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
Looking forward to seeing what you do all month!

That's probably what happened. I'd heard about the Buffy connection but didn't know he'd also gotten into the Teletubbies.
