Help identifying music video where Big Bird falls on band
« on: September 17, 2018, 02:27:53 PM »

My business partner has been pestering me about this for years.

She unequivocally insists there was a music video on MTV around 1983 in which Big Bird falls down from the ceiling and lands on the band. The only other thing she remembers about the video is that the band was dressed in black and performing in front of a white background.

I watched MTV some back then, and I don't remember this at all. Does anyone know if this was real, or what video it was?

You two are the most human of the posters here. I have no idea what video that would be.

I bet this is it. It has to be.

I don't know how I missed the Big Bird scene the lone time I saw this video. It's not the sort of thing I'd ever forget.

I'll let you and your business partner figure out which one of you now owes me $50 for finding that video.

Knowing what address to send the money to should be as simple as doing a search on this forum or finding the easter egg in this post.
