Set your Tivos! This Sunday, VH1 Classic will air a full hour of Nena’s “99 Luftballons” (both English and German versions).
Before you cry “publicity stunt,” it’s actually part of the channel’s Pay To Play For Hurricane Katrina Relief campaign, in which viewers donated money in exchange for the opportunity to program hour-long video blocks.
For his allotted hour, one donor requested the music video for Nena’s 1984 hit, and Classic has obliged. If you JUST CAN’T WAIT for an hour of Nena, our favorite showbiz friend/foe delivers.
If I was forced to watch one video continuously for an hour, I would choose… actually, can’t think of one. Can you?
