4 small puppets who look very much like the original Swedish supergroup from the seventies ABBA are trying to get a recordingcontract in Stockholm, Sweden 1974. The recordboss, however, isn't very impressed by their size and size DOES matter... The four original ABBA members also make cameo appearances in this video especially made for the Eurovision Songcontest. Written by

This video was part of The Eurovision Song Contest (2004) and was broadcast in the semi-final interval act in some countries of Europe (in other countries, for example Spain, it was replaced by a commercial break) while people were voting. It was a way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of ABBA's victory in the The Eurovision Song Contest (2004) with "Waterloo". See more »
The four ABBA puppets perform some of ABBA's greatest hits while trying to "charm" slimy record boss Rik Mayall in this adorable short video. Most of the dialog "real" people in the video speak uses lines from ABBA songs. The cameos by the former members of ABBA allow us an interesting contrast to their former selves. The DVD includes a "making of the video" section which gives a behind the scenes look at all the work and technical details needed to bring the puppets to life. There are also four original ABBA videos from the 1970s included on the DVD, complete with wacky outfits and very basic choreography. A real treat for ABBA fans, and even those of us who merely remember them as a constant presence on the radio during our younger days!
