Watch (HQ digital stereo remaster) Before anyone accuses me of fraud, this really is the official music video released in Australia for King Of Pain. It was shown on the iconic ABC music programme Countdown on 11 March 1984. It is as an edited version of The Polices album promo film Studies In Synchronicity. The ABCs Countdown was so powerful in the music industry in the 80s that it alone could make or break songs and artists - no video, no promotion, no chance. So A and M had little choice but to put this together in order to promote this song in Australia, the fourth single from the Synchronicity album. That makes it an official music video. I dont know if it was shown anywhere else in the world.
