"a sorta fairytale" #4 in VH1 Pop-Up Video's top videos of Winter 2003
They include interesting tidbits about the a sorta fairytale video. For those who want to see this again, Carolyn informs me that VH1 in the U.S. will show this again on Thu, March 13 at 5:00PM ET, Tuesday, March 18 at 11:00AM and Tuesday, March 18 at 3:00PM.
Many thanks to Soulwings658, VespertineMist and Robert for being the first to tell me about this. Soulwings658 wrote a transcript of the little bits that appeared in the pop-ups as they played the a sorta fairytale video, and you can read that below. I imagine this will be repeated numerous times on VH1 in the U.S. in the near future.
