The most absurd video...

Postby tobi777 » 17 Dec 2015, 21:28

Hi all,

just stumbled upon this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxUrIjfzLdY

It is sad that it has become so common to have only a playback performance in a TV show so I don't like these appearances but I had a good laugh when I noticed Martin Ditcham pretended to play keyboards (and his movements did not even remotely resemble those of a real player)!!! :lol:

Why on earth did they hire an additional drummer and have Martin miming keyboards? :shock:

Hi Tobias,

real fun, indeed! I saw this video before, but did not notice! I am almost sure they did it for a laugh! The same with this On the Beach video from 08.09.1986 (Einsfestival Känguru), where Chris is miming playing bass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMwbzZxb1KE

how about the situtation when singer is singing on the background but the singer is not even pretending singing on the mic at that moment?? :) Saw once one tv-show where Chris started to sing about 3-4 seconds after his voice was already out there :) I don´t either like those tv-show performances where the band is not playing on live.

Hi Guys,

Toppop in the Nethrlands has a few akward ones too:
Max Middlton on guitar:
And another one the presenter quits the show forever and Chris was not informed.Everyone was partying and he tried to concentrate on singing Josephine. He mouths in between: What?. misses some lyrics and looks angry.

And there was an English tv show, where he seemed to sleep, it was boring. He made some absurd tv.
