In the summer of 1990, Kim Mitchell and video director Don Allan stopped to visit with MuchMusic’s Dan Gallagher to ask fans for help. Kim’s first solo live album, I Am A Wild Party, was burning up the charts and tape decks nation wide! All he needed was a music video.
Mitchell is always a card and this segment is no exception.
Kim and Don Allan wanted footage of your “wild party” or your “air bands”; anything really to go with that “Rah! Rah! Olé!” chorus. I also included a few snips of my own footage that I filmed specifically with a rented camera for the video! Ultimately though, Mitchell and Allan abandoned the fan video concept, and made a straight live/studio clip for “I Am A Wild Party”.
This is historically interesting to Kim fans since the video as originally conceived never came to be.*
Enjoy some goofy Kim on Much!
*EDIT: Mike from Facebook was the winner chosen for the “I Am A Wild Party” video and says this!
I was the one that won that contest, and in MM’s defence they made a “limited edition play version” with about 10 seconds from our submission video that was cut off in the final version. But thanks for finding this… Rah Rah Ole!
