David Mallet directed David Bowie in the video for "Ashes To Ashes":

The filming was interrupted at one point by an old man walking his dog, looking for driftwood. Mallet asked him if he wouldn’t mind moving, and pointed out Bowie sitting outside the catering van. “Do you know who this is?” he asked. Sharp as a tack, the old man responded with, “Of course I do. It’s some cunt in a clown suit.”

Sometime later, Bowie remembered, “That was a huge moment for me. It put me back in my place and made me realize, ‘Yes, I’m just a cunt in a clown suit.’ ”
