King of Suede--video???

Post by anthontherun »

I was checking out the Rare Items page the other day and in one of the item's description, it mentions a montage of still photos that made a "King of Suede" video.



Now, is this the only place where this video is available? Is it taken from AL-TV or made just for this release (I know it says "used to create" but that doesn't necessarily mean created for this tape)? Has it been released in the U.S.?



Even though it's just still photographs, I'd like to see it. It'd be perfect for a re-release of The Videos...

Nope, the only videos on the Weird Al show were Livin' in the Fridge and Lasagna...

Has anyone actually seen the super-rare "King Of Suede" video, which was only released on that Japanese "Eat It" VHS (which can be seen on Bermuda's site)?

I'm 99% sure that there isn't a KoS video. Whatever you heard was probably just a rumor.

Actually, there is. It's not really a "video", but a picture collage of stills. I remember reading about it somewhere, but I can't recall where (perhaps the Permanent Record booklet?) I just always thought it would have been like the KoS single cover.

And you're right, TheLazenby, here's the link on weirdal.com:


"Eat It" promotional VHS

Eat It
1984, Scotti Bros./Pony Video (VHS)
The first commercial video on Al, containing his music videos for Eat It, I Love Rocky Road, and Ricky, plus a montage of still photos used to create a video for King Of Suede. There is a Japanese narrator speaking in-between the videos, but we never quite learned what he was saying.

A collage of stills would qualify not as a video, but as a...slide show?
taste is only something if it is yours.
