Clockin’ The Jizz is a Prince and the New Power Generation video filmed together with other Gett Off remixes videos at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota in late July - early August 1991.

This video is notable in many ways. It starts with Sonny T. laughing hysterically while kicking an image of himself on the ground. Prince is then seen watching a video of himself playing guitar in a club. It is interrupted by a drum solo by Michael B. and footage of Prince interviewing the members of The NPG. In this sequence, Sonny T. recounts an UFO sighting. The interviews are followed by a video showing Mayte (her first appearance in a Prince video) doing a sword-dance, most likely from one of the tapes she sent him right after they met. Clockin’ The Jizz ends after Tommy Barbarella and Levi Seacer, Jr. come to pick up Prince to stop watching this tape and go to work. Some footage from this video was reused and re-edited for the Diamonds And Pearls Video Collection and 3 Chains O’ Gold home videos.

Since its main purpose was to serve as the visual footage for the credits of Gett Off home video, Clockin’ The Jizz was not uploaded by The Prince Estate on Prince YouTube channel in 2017.
