Brief introduction: this clip is the classic one directed by Herb Ritts which features Helena Christensen along with Isaak, the one heavily played on MTV and similar channels to net be confused with David Lynch version which only presents Isaak and band playing with some scenes from "Wild at Heart" (1990).
Ritts version is the most recognized and the better one as well. Has to be the hottest clip of all time, it's there for all tastes and the song is a pure delicacy to our ears. Clip concept: Chris Isaak and Helena Christensen as a couple making love on a desert island. Perfect, right? The elements that stays with you: the breaking waves, the sand, those immense clouds, black and white cinematography, the extremely hot couple with the girl teasing Isaak and us while covering her breasts, and Chris muttering/lip synching the song while they're always about to kiss (and they don't, actually except for one brief second and it's a neck kiss). A solid proof that less is always more. Seduction, fantasy and the idea of sex is all there without recurring to excess or exploitation like today's clips tend to throw.
If the words aren't helpful, just run watch the clip. 10/10
