"Sex Pistols" - Silly Thing

Hadn't got a clue the "Pistols" ever made a video for the post Rotten "Silly Thing", but here 'tis. An examination of Jonesy's footballer perm and Cook's truly offensive mullet suggests filming must have been right around the time of Rock'n'Roll Swindle and the film's release in late '78/early '79. This is the arguably superior 7" single version, louder than the album version, with altered lyrics and Jones singing instead of Cook. Originally written as "Silly Cunt", either about Vicious or Rotten, depending on who's telling the story.
