The music video for the Hadouken! song M.A.D. shows a man dressed in a mouse outfit, who appears to be a public menace. He intentionally trips an elderly woman and harasses two women on the street. The mouse then walks into a shop where he tries to buy a bottle of alcoholic cider from the shopkeeper, but the shopkeeper refuses to sell alcohol to him, leading to an argument that causes the mouse to beat him up. The mouse drinks the cider and starts to feel bad about his actions. Finally a cat, who is a man dressed in a cat outfit being a public hero, chases and wins a fight against the mouse, presumably killing him with a brick as the music video ends.
The music video was directed by Martyn Thomas with Tim Mo'Gridge as director of photography & produced by Marie Claire Denyer. George Herse portrayed the mouse, and Tom Harris portrayed the cat.
