"Jazzin' for Blue Jean" (1984)

Bowie went cinematic with the 20-minute short film that accompanied single "Blue Jean." Directed by Julien Temple, who worked with the musician and actor two years later on the film Absolute Beginners, Bowie plays both Vic, an average man, and Screaming Lord Byron, a rock star. He meets a girl at a bar who's a huge fan of Byron, so Vic lies to her and says that he knows him. At Byron's show, Vic convinces him to meet with the girl and ends up stealing Vic's date in the end.
