    "after the enormous commercial success of their 1978 hit "y. M. C. A. " which unexpectedly became the unofficial hymn and powerful advertising tool for the ymca, the united states navy contacted group manager henri belolo for production of a similar song about the united states navy, considering using the song in a recruiting advertising campaign on television and radio. Henri belolo gave the rights for free on the condition that the navy help them shoot the music video. Less than a month later, village people arrived at the san diego naval base. The navy provided them with a warship (uss reasoner (ff-1063)), several aircraft, and the crew of the ship (with the stipulation that the crew wouldn't dance). The navy later canceled the campaign after protests erupted over using taxpayer money for a music video of a controversial group. "
