The Last Christmas clip was originally filmed in 1984 at a Swiss resort called Saas-Fee, and features Wham! members George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, along with singers Pepsi and Shirlie, model Kathy Hill, Spandau Ballet bassist Martin Kemp, and more friends.
Last Christmas has been remastered in 4K quality
It is very strange to see such a high quality 80’s music video. In fact, at first glance, it looks like a recreation with current actors. In the scenes inside the cabin where they take shelter, or the fights with snowballs seem surprisingly recent. The members of the group, George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, were 21 years old in 1984, when the clip was recorded.
Million views on YouTube
The song, with 700 million views on YouTube, is not very Christmasy, beyond its title. It talks about a painful love breakup and how painful it can be to be reunited with your ex-partner after a long time.
As a curiosity, it was the last time we saw George Michael clean-shaven. Later, for the videoclip of Everything She Wants, we would see him with his characteristic beard or goatee, which he kept for the rest of his career.
We have to remember that «Last Christmas» has been made into a movie starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Michelle Yeoh and Emma Thompson. The soundtrack of Last Christmas includes 3 songs by Wham! including «Last Christmas» and ‘Everything She Wants’.
