Van Halen fans are blown away by the appearance of a very rarely seen promo video shot for the band’s 1981 favorite, “So This Is Love?” Loudersound posted the backstory for the clip from a YouTuber named Kosmo VanHalenItalia.
He explained, “At the end of 1981, Van Halen filmed some videoclip settled in a Jurassic park in Italy, the ‘Prehistoric Park’ of Rivolta D’Adda (near Milan). The band was engaged in a European tour for promoting Fair Warning. These videos aired on Italian state television, RAI 1, during a TV show called Happy Circus. Van Halen Italia Fan Club found those video clips and shares them with fans all over the world.”
