The video shows two policemen dancing a tango version of the famous song performed by The Eurhythmics. In its origins, tango was mainly a dance between two men. They danced in harbour brothels. It was the result of the cultural mix of locals with immigrants. It was originally forbidden by the church and rejected by high society, which resulted in its development in poor suburbs and working class slums.
