99 Luftballons on the wall, 99 luftballons...

VH1 Classic will be airing Nena's "99 Luftballons"/"99 Red Balloons" video continuously for an hour today at 2 p.m. EST. Strange, but it's for charity.

For $35k (the amount of the donation), I could think of other videos that I'd want to see on a loop: Warrant's "Cherry Pie" comes to mind.

It's "Neunundneunzig" Luftballons, thanks.

Is it horrifically culturally insensitive of me to remark that this song makes German sound like a very funny language?

spydrz - Thanks, Fritz. Go back to Germania. :)

law fairy - Nope. I refer you to Corky's take on Das Boot in Waiting for Guffman: "I love that whole submarine scene where all the guys speaking German, you know 'ruf ruf ruf' like a bunch of barnyard animals."

I can't wait until For Your Consideration is released.
