A controversial aspect of this song was the music video that was made in 1984 when a remixed version of the song was released. The video was directed by choreographer Kenny Ortega. In the clip, the sisters are seen getting ready for a formal party at a high society club. Anita Pointer is shown dressing and applying make-up; Ruth Pointer is wearing nothing but a nightgown and is shown rolling around on her bed and throwing her garments around, and June Pointer is wearing nothing at all and taking a bubble bath As she stands up, she reveals too much of her lower regions.

Once the sisters arrive at the club, they are photographed, attracting the attention of the other party goers. By the video's end, they have the club on its feet jamming to the song.
It is simply impossible to put any other meaning on this song or place any other memory around the words and sentiments expressed in it than describing the height of sexual intercourse and arousal. Whereas the words of the song were explicit enough, their notoriety is exceeded only by the explicit music video of Kenny Ortega. But what a song to dance and move to! I remember it well. Three songs would be guaranteed to get us all up dancing, ‘Brown Sugar’, Maggie May and ‘I’m So Excited’.
