In 1991 I and four of my friends – Karen, Peter, Steen and Merethe – produced a music video for and with the popular Danish kitch-duo Sussi & Leo. We produced the video as a part of our studies in commmunications at University of Aalborg.
Although the production was rewarded top-grades by the university, the technical quality was to poor to have it broadcastet on tv.
However the quality is excellent for Youtube-use! This afternoon Karen had our old VHS-video-copy digitalized and uploaded to youtube. Here it is:
It was great fun producing the video with Sussi & Leo, who excells in bad taste. I clearly remember sitting with Sussi and Leo in their leather couch, drinking instant tomato soup from a machine (you know the one with a wheel you have to turn to release the granula (flavour of your own choice), then pushing another button adding hot water) while working on the project. As a special thank you we all recieved a bottle of their homebrewed wine made from turnips grown in the fields outside their windows.
PS: A quick translation of the lyrics goes like this:
It was a great party/
I attended as a guest/
The air grew dense with signals/
We left the party together/
as the perfect couple/
Next morning I had second thoughts
What can I say/
Can you stay/
Please tell me if it was all just for the fun of it/
And so on…
