It's also about the sentance "Take the L out of lover" is to be visualized. The idea for the paintings and later to the video was inpired by a song and it's hookline.

Where the song "touch me... I want to be dirty" and the unconventional behavoir of the actors and the incredably great virtuosity of their performance were the source of inspiration, too. So thanks to all those incredible actors like: Tim Curry as Frank N. Furter, Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, Nell Campbell as „Little Nell"as Columbia, Patricia Quinn as Magenta und Jonathan Adams as Dr. Everett Scott, Meat Loaf as Eddie, Barry Bostwick as Brad Majors and wonderful Susan Sarandon as Janet Weiss mit Susan Sarandon.
