Basic guide to making charity videos: 80s music

September 30, 2009

Sting may not inspire me to the end of the earth, but apparently you can’t beat 80s music and a nicely made video. Sting with the Prince’s Rainforests Project have made a funky little video in a push for pre-Copenhagen support.

I may be a sap for traditional Comic Relief style videos, but this one today grabs at my secret love of 80s music. Although you can’t win me over solely by sticking a Madonna or Sting soundtrack over any old junk – I’m a charity video snob, sorry – I’m a big fan of how this video’s been put together (it cuts in time and has celebs saying their names very seriously in a big list).

For such an serious cause, I do feel a bit too inclined to sign up and then dance around the 80s musical nonsense – though I’m fairly sure that’s the point. (Can we have obnoxious sing-alongs in Trafalgar Square to follow?) But now! To the trashy music vault that is my mp3 player!
