Amigas in music videos

Anyone remember any music videos where Amiga hardware is shown? (not videos made or enhanced in Amigas)

I was watching Savage's [ Show youtube player ], spotted a kickass TI-99/4A and started wondering...

There's like a thousand computers in Philip Oakey's "Together In Electric Dreams" and none is an Amiga. Shame on the producers

The film was pretty average, but the record did indeed kick serious ass.

'The Chart Show' in the late 80's/early 90's used video overlay of workbench graphics/icons on every music video they showed

Although commonplace nowadays, such interfaces were relatively cutting-edge at the time. The look of the icons was updated on the move to ITV in January 1989, and again upon the show's relaunch on December 7, 1991. However, this update only lasted one show and the previous 1989 icons returned the following week and lasted until May 1996 when the show's look and production was completely overhauled and was replaced with an animated text banner at the bottom of the screen.

I'd love to get hold of those icons... how cool would it be

TIED was released in 1984, so there was no way the Amiga could have made an appearance.

Who in their right mind would tape the Chart Show, actually keep it for that amount of time and then bother to encode and publish it?

We're dealing with a sinister mind there....
