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.

Curiosities

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.
