Get Wild is a music video by The NPG released to promote the single Get Wild, which had an exclusive release in Europe.

The video was presumably shot in September 1994 at the Glam Slam club in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Get Wild begins with the arrival of The NPG at the club where Mayte is already present, signing autographs. Together they cross the dance floor, while The Exodus Has Begun is playing in the background, to fire DJ Brother Jules, re-enacting the DJ Gets Jumped segue included on the Exodus album. After Tora Tora beats up the DJ, the band takes their places on stage to sing Get Wild. Throughout the video, girls are seen going into a room with a prominent symbol over the entry. They come out with an attitude indicating that they have had a sexual affair. When Mayte manages to enter this mysterious room, she discovers that there is only a bottle of the ‘Get Wild’ perfume that she ends up stealing. The video ends with Sonny T. getting beaten up too after inadvertently removing a girl’s wig while kissing her.

The Get Wild video is notable as it features the first appearance of Prince in disguise as Tora Tora (his face covered with a veil) and as being a commercial for the fragance of the same name.

  • A few days after the shooting of this video, Prince and Gilbert Davison had a falling-out, allegedly over the ownership of the Glam Slam club in Minneapolis. Prince dissociated himself from that club as he was no longer welcome. All of his memorabilia that were on display at the Glam Slam shop were removed. The next videos for The NPG were shot in Glam Slam South in Miami, Florida, where Gilbert Davison had no involvement.
  • Of note, the video version uses a different, longer mix of the song, not included on any physical release.
