Recently, after many years, I watched on VH1 the video for "Modern talking`s" song "Brother Louie" (year was 1986.) and I was very surprised. I didn`t remembered that the whole video is "covered" with the scenes from OUATIA. Does anyone knows why is that? As I know, this "song" and this "band" has no conecction with Sergio or this film. Further more, film was released in 1984. and this song in 1986. So, I ask again, does anyone knows anything about this?

Brother Louie, Louie, Louie...

Don't know what to think of this. I remember a few of their 'songs' and they were always kinda gayish. Or they were trying to be. Anyway, it's obviously they stole this, I don't see how Sergio Leone would let them take material from his movies for this kind of shit...

I wish I never saw this.

Yes, they were "kinda gayish". That`s why I asked a question. I mean, what possibly can they have in common with Sergio and his films? Nothing!

It was thought a fashionable look for young men in pop groups in the early 80's. I don't think that Dieter Bohlen or Thomas Anders were gay and their music is still popular in some places. It's reported that they are the biggest-selling German music act in history and it could just be that the person they employed to produce the video was a Leone fan.

I don`t know if they were/are gays, but if you look a little bit better, you will notice that one of them, around his neck, wearing a peace of jewelry with inscription "NORA"!? I don`t know. Maybe he was calling himself like that...

I agree with A1 about his observation on the 80's, however, we are trying to link Leone with this 'video'. I must say I'd rather think of it as stealing, and close this whole matter before my idols fall apart.

About ''Modern Talking''; if they are not gay but they accepted to do this anyway - they're idiots, which is far worse in my opinion. They were also 'singing' in playback I think. The first time I've heard them I thought they were girls, no joke.

I really don't know whether I should laugh or cry. Maybe the finest piece of art combined with maybe the purest piece of shit can cause that.
