Two of Ninety-nine

This morning, the campus was fogged-in but there were red balloons everywhere to guide international students to various locations for orientation. I took this photo and then immediately got Nena's 99 Luftballons stuck in my head.

Thank goodness for YouTube -- here's the video in its original German, though this is not the first video they produced for the song. The first video featured concert footage and was rejected by MTV; MuchMusic played it, and I remember JD Roberts (now John Roberts) and Michael Williams joking about the fact that American audiences apparently didn't want to see Nena's armpit hair.
