ABBA - The Last Puppet Video

In 2004, the most expensive music video ever made in Sweden was Abba's The Last Video. Four puppets, manipulated by puppeteers from the Jim Henson company together with some British and local Swedish puppeteers were brought to Stockholm to make this film.

The puppets, miniature caricatures of the original Swedish super group from the seventies ABBA, were trying to get a recording contract in Sweden in 1974. The record boss, however, isn't very impressed by their size. The four original ABBA members also made cameo appearances in this video, which was especially made for the Eurovision Songcontest. You can now watch the 'Making of the Abba's Last Video' here!
