Kiss music video borrowed from KC and Sunshine Band?

Did Prince ever discuss his disco era influences or contemporaries? I found this coincidence while digging around listening to old music.

1982 - KC and Sunshine Band's album artwork for "All In A Night's Work"

1986 Prince's music video for "Kiss"

I am pretty sure the concept was mostly from the director, Rebecca Blake.

I do recall an interview with her about it... but I could not find it...

Thanks. She doesn't mention her inspiration but she has a history of photography in the music industry. I wonder if she was the photographer of the 1982 KC album artwork? Anybody have a physical copy of the KC album w/liner notes? I'm not having any luck googling it.

Hmm, seems like there may be some sort of tangent connection.

Rebecca Blake's photography was featured in "Eyes of Laura Mars" a 1978 film that was "imagined a glamourous star vehicle with a hit disco soundtrack featuring KC & The Sunshine Band."
