NIRVANA "IN BLOOM"
AOTHER Oberhausen-related Ohrwurm.
You see, I'm not bitter or anything, but the video that beat my Giardini di Mirò video was by a popular German band called Die Ärtze. Obviously their voting power was greater than FFF's, but the thing that got me was their video was an exceedingly similar idea to the video to this Nirvana song. Not exactly a rip off, but as close as.
So, as the night went on, I found myself having a lot of internal discussions about the merits of Die Ärtze's video, occasionally glancing across to the winner's table at the post-awards meal, and seeing the director of their clip and thinking, "Bastard!"
