Video | | Short, Music
The original, controversial banned version of the music video in which Madonna and her dancers run havoc on a fashion runway as a social and political statement about the commercialism and wars of the time.
Due to the political climate of the country at the time, on April 1, 2003, Madonna pulled the video and released a statement explaining why: "I have decided not to release my new video. It was filmed before the war started and I do not believe it is appropriate to air it at this time. Due to the volatile state of the world and out of sensitivity and respect to the armed forces, who I support and pray for, I do not want to risk offending anyone who might misinterpret the meaning of this video."
