The Wall in Berlin: Parody video/power failure

Greetings Floydians,

Here's a hilarious mockumentary spoofing Roger's Wall concert in Berlin 1990.

While I'm on the subject of the Berlin concert, here's an interesting bit of film you don't see on the DVD. The REAL performance of The Thin Ice, where the power failed and Roger was left tap dancing on live TV. The power failed again during Mother, except I can't find that footage.

The Thin Ice had to be reshot after the show for the album and video. The Mother performance on the DVD comes from the dress rehearsal (Sinead O'Connor was grouchy and wouldn't stay after the show to do a reshoot.)

Funny, it reminds me of a small club on Gabriola Island where a similar thing happened to us Pigs. I guess whether you're rocking out to 15 or 15,000 or more (Adam knows the attendance for Berlin, I'm sure)- you run into a lot of the same problems.

It was something like 300,000 people (or some insane number) at that show. They sold all the tickets, but in the end just decided to take away the security fences and make it free because so many people showed up in excess.
