"Heart" by Pet Shop Boys

It may not feature at the top of his resume, but birthday boy Sir Ian McKellen appeared in this Pet Shop Boys video, released in 1988 and based on the 1922 film Nosferatu; the song is called Heart, and was the fourth and final single from the pop duo's second album Actually.

The video - directed by Jack Bond, who also helmed their 1987 film It Couldn't Happen Here - features Neil Tennant as the groom, Danijela Čolić as the bride, Chris Lowe as the super-hot chauffeur*, and the birthday boy himself as the surprisingly camp vampire (a camp-ire?) desperately in need of a dental plan - not to mention a manicure; it was shot in the Slovenian castle of Grad Mokrice, which is a resort where you yourself could stay, were you in the mood for the ultimate pop culture vacation.

*He could drive me anywhere! Badump-tish!
