Storyline

The Dope Show's single release was accompanied by a surrealistic music video directed by Paul Hunter, which began filming on August 8, 1998 and which premiered on August 20, 1998. In scenes reminiscent of The Man Who Fell to Earth, Manson appears red-haired, with his entire body, including prosthetic rubber breasts, covered in white latex paint as an androgynous extraterrestrial wandering around the Hollywood Hills. He is captured, studied in a laboratory, and eventually transported by limousine to a stage where he and the other members of the band the fictional band Omega and the Mechanical Animals perform the song in concert before hysterical fans who end up rioting and crossing the security barriers.
