Gett Off (Houstyle) is a Prince and the New Power Generation video. Unlike previous videos, this one was commercially available (on the Gett Off home video) before broadcast.

Very much in line with the Gett Off video sex theme (and shot around the same time at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota), Gett Off (Houstyle) shows Prince & The NPG surrounded by scantily clad models, including Lori Elle (Diamond) and Robia LaMorte (Pearl). Rosie Gaines has a more prominent role in the video.

Of note, the video features a brief glimpse of Prince’s father, John L. Nelson, seen in a picture in a shot filmed at Prince’s Galpin Blvd house, near Paisley Park Studios.

Interestingly the video as it was released on YouTube, Vevo and iTunes in 2017 is a previously unreleased version than runs over three minutes longer compared to how it was featured on the Gett Off home video.
