A rare von Trier video, in original and remix form. The remix was done by DJ Shaun Baker.

What's your source for claiming that "Bet it on You" and "Highway of Love" were directed by von Trier?
his wife worked on all three...
Ex-wife. If that's good enough for proof. Doesn't co-instruktør mean co-director?
According to my von Trier book (published in 1998) he directed all but one of the following promos:
Laid Back - Elevator Boy (co-directed by Vladimir Oravsky) (1983)
Laid Back - Bakerman (1990)
Laid Back - Highway of Love (directed by Åke Sandgren, concept by Lars von Trier) (1990)
Laid Back - Bet It On You (1990)
Manu Katché - Change (1992)
Kim Larsen - Danas Have (1992)
Kim Larsen - Leningrad (1992)
Joachim Holbek - The Shiver (1994)
One might add:
Lars von Trier and The Idiots All Stars - You're a Lady (a cover of Peter Skellern's 1972 hit)
great little video.
mp4 here. feel free to add up top.
Silly me. "Bet It on You" has an on-screen credit. And because of his travel phobia von Trier couldn't possibly have directed "Highway of Love". The fact is he never set foot on US soil. But Kev, I am still interested in your source.
Scroll down the 'news' bit on Laid Back's site.
First time I've seen that clip for me. Pretty crazy. Would it have been cruel to toss a dog out with the rest of the band? That's the only element I would add. ;)
The night train is coming!!!
