The millenium in Switzerland?

Postby Perthguy » Fri Aug 21, 2009 9:35 pm

On 31st of December 2000 (I know, some think millenium begins 2001) to celebrate the new millenium, they put on a program here(Australia) on t.v. The show went around the world as the different timezones celebrated the start of the new millenium at midnight and when it got to Switzerland they played Yello music and the video had Dieter and Boris flying around in spaceships (I think) amoung the mountains of Switzerland.
Does anyone know about this and if so, the Yello song they played? Thanks :D

I've been trying to find it on ABC (the channel here which showed it.) archives, but havn't yet. I heard Yello is pretty popular in Switzerland (their home country) where Stella got to #1 and other albums and singles in top 10 or 40 alot. A bit like John Farnham or Jimmy Barnes here, they're known as legends here, but unknown in other countries.

You know... It's really hard to find all pieces where YELLO participated.
I've got a Philip Morris commercial from 1998 which is based on "TO THE SEA" video, but music is like a different version of Tiger Dust with Dieter's voice sample "Shake it...".
Hopefully, I'll post it someday on YouTube.
