Madonna survives a nuclear explosion in the clip for “Ghosttown,” her second single off Rebel Heart.
The better part of the video is a mostly harrowing scene for the pop star. She wanders out of her studio apartment into a fire-razed, post-apocalyptic landscape in the clip. The only survivors appear to be a tarantula, a rat and what looks like a wolf, so she lives out a Last Man on Earth–type fantasy (wearing a top hat while wrecking a pile of chairs with a golf club) until she encounters another human: actor Terrence Howard, who is focusing the sight of an assault rifle on her. They make friends and the clip works its way toward a happy ending, including the discovery of one more human. Longtime Madonna video collaborator Jonas Åkerlund helmed the clip.
