File:"Rock The Casbah" - The Clash

Rock the Casbah was filmed in Austin, Texas, and depicts an Arab, played by Austin actor Titos Menchaca, and a Hasidic Jew, played by local stage director Dennis Razze, befriend each other on the road and skanking together through the streets to a Clash concert at Palmer Auditorium, often followed by an armadillo, interspersed with the band performing in front of an oil well. The U.S. Air Force became an unwitting participant in the video as two RF-4C aircraft landing at Bergstrom Air Force Base from the east are featured in the portion of the video.
