From the Paper:

"These cut-away shots, in addition to telling the story, serve a purpose in the video-making process. Continuity editing, often seen in television and movies to establish fluidity of motion through an entire world, can be seen in some of the shots of people walking toward the store where people are gathering. However, the rest of the video seems to use brief clips consisting of only a few seconds at a time. This process, Carol Vernallis explains, is a music video technique used to keep the video story from overtaking the importance of the song (28). Vernallis explains that the most frequently seen setting for a woman in a music video is a domestic one (82). These videos do not place the singer in such a role; however, some of the dissatisfied women in the second video are seen in this setting."
