This is included on the excellent AC/DC "Family Jewels" DVD collection. It was originally circulated on VHS but went out of print quite a few years back -- the Family Jewels is a great way for fans to relive this video, as well as many others, that have long since stopped appearing on television and video.
"Fly on the Wall" was a 1986 AC/DC album that didn't make much of a fuss when it came out. The videos from that album take place in a small bar (reminded me of the one in "Blues Brothers") wherein the videos themselves are placed between brief segments (mostly humorous).
It opens with two bouncers kicking out a paparazzi photographer, which causes a sleeping animated fly to awaken from his rest. Inside the bar, AC/DC begins to play the song "Fly on the Wall," which is intercut with segments of the fly itself buzzing around.
This type of back-and-forth segment-intercutting is done throughout the 26-minute video. It's quite odd and unique and I found it entertaining. A must-see for casual fans, a must-own for AC/DC fans (I'm somewhere in between, myself - and I appreciated it very much).
