Theme To U2’s “Beautiful Day” Music Video@CDG

Sat Sep 23, 2000 2:06 am

Anyone seen this particular music video? As far as I could tell, it was filmed exclusively at CDG!
A/c featured were an EVA Air 744, taxying past the flyover (that part of the taxiway at CDG which crosses over the highway), an Air France A320, and a MEA A310, plus numerous shots of other a/c flying over the group’s head.

There was also extensive filming within CDG Terminal2’s departure lounge and baggage reclaim hall. And after all that, the song was quite good too!

Anyone have any info of re “behind the scenes”; ie. Was anyone there during filming??!

Hello,

There are quite many clips made at CDG 2F, and many films of course.

Notice they edited out the titles on the EVA 744 but not the MEA A310. There was also a NG737 (SAS 736?). It was a nice video.

Yes, they did edit out the Eva Air part. I didn't see the 737 though.

My other question was why should they edit out airline schemes in the first place?

Hello,

It's because you can be put on trial for displaying a brand without permission.

Ferrari put Jamiroquai on trial because he had driven his black Ferrari F355 while making his clip.

Maybe EVA Air don't want their image to be associated with U2.

Non, I think that's the one part of the video not shot at CDG. Looks like an old airfield near Paris.

i loved the video too.Especially w´hen that plane flew just above tgheir heads.But i would rather say that they didnt actually stand there.
It looks a boit unreal when you see the video couple of times.

There is also another video shooted at the airport.
This time its Stockholm Arlanda airport.
The video was shoot at terminal 2 and Sky City.
The artist is swedish Peter Jöback.
But he sings in englsish , and the song is quite good, so there is a chance you see it too

I prefer to be crazy and happy rather than normal and bitter
