Sweet Emotion is based on a phone sex conversation. In the video, it shows a young man under his covers with a magazine which is advertising a phone sex line. The man and woman talk about each other for a bit, until it goes into a shot of the band performing in someone's basement, which was recorded in the band's old apartment on 1325 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. It switches back-and-forth between Aerosmith performing "Sweet Emotion" and the phone conversation. At the very end, it is revealed that the sexy woman the young man is talking with is not what he sees her as in his mind. She is shown to be an overweight older woman with a baby living in a poor house.
