Quite a nice video IMO, very fitting for a best of album song. From what I've seen until now, there's quite a number of fans who aren't that happy with this "simple" video and they also have the feeling that it's some kind of farewell.
So what do you think? What feeling do you have after watching this video? Maybe feeling a bit nostalgic?
And before you've even recovered from that one, on December 3, the never-before seen video for Mädchen aus dem All will be up on their page and MyVideo.de!
There is no official information yet on what these videos will be like, or if the Mädchen aus dem All video will be new or something filmed at an earlier time, but we don't have much longer to wait! :D
Hey all, I'd like to announce a little something new we'll be doing around here on THI!
Recently it has come to my attention that there are lots and lots of things that many fans have never seen before. Some of this stuff gets buried under all of the new things going on, and I know that newer fans don’t always know where to look for it! So every Wednesday, I will be sharing something from Tokio Hotel’s earlier days, be it a video, article, etc (always with English translations, of course). If you’ve seen it before, hopefully you will enjoy it again!
Tokio Hotel has donated a music room and a library to an underfunded school in Chile! It is for a program called MusicMente. This is really lovely of them, especially considering how two of them have expressed how they felt about school in general ;) Here you can see photos of them signing instruments for the students:

"Wild Animals Out Of The Circus!" Bill & Tom from Tokio Hotel stand up for animals
The twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Germany's internationally most successful rock band Tokio Hotel protest with an elaborate photo opportunity for the use of animals in the entertainment industry: "The Slaves Of The Entertainment Industry: Wild Animals Out Of The Circus!" is the slogan with which the musicians, for the first time now participate in a PETA campaign.
Chained and blood-smeared, Bill and Tom are seen in dark surroundings. The campaign is published internationally: in addition to Europe, it is also seen in the U.S. and Asia.
"You only have time to imagine that animals are kept all their lives like that! Circus performances with animals should be prohibited, there are enough interesting alternatives!" says Bill. Specifically, the musicians will appeal to parents who are still bringing their children to the circus with this design. "Especially parents must develop a consciousness here." says Tom.
The two vegetarians also wonder about the Federal Government: On October 17th 2003, the Federal Council unanimously sent a clear signal to the federal government and in a resolution. voted to ban wild animals in the circus (especially elephants, monkeys and bears). The federal government still does not move and makes animal abuse to continue!
A recent representative survey of the Society for Consumer Research in Nürnberg (April 2010) clearly shows that two thirds of the population of wild animals in circuses are no longer timely. And the Federal Chamber of Veterinary Surgeonsin April 2010, well spoken words, called for reasons of animal protection, the prohibition of wild animals in traveling circuses.
While European countries such as Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Bulgaria and others have long since imposed a ban on wild animals, the federal government remains passive and thus ignorant of animal suffering.
Tokio Hotel is set to release a 'Best Of' compilation album in December, in both English and German, featuring 16 tracks chosen from their previous albums, as well a new release ('Hurricanes And Suns'), plus Devilish-era track "Mädchen aus dem All" as a bonus.
The German release will also be offered in a two-disc version, which comes with a DVD consisting of all their videos, plus an extra segment showing the making of 'Monsoon', 'Schrei', as well as others.
The album is already listed for pre-order in the respective online retailers for several countries.
Bill has joined up with Alice Cooper for an advertising campaign for European electronics company, Saturn! Check out the images and video below, along with a translation of information thanks to TokioHotel-Info!
What a weird monster- rock round!
Singer Bill Kaulitz (21) from "Tokio Hotel" feels obviously comfortable next to the three wildly styled aliens and veteran-rocker Alice Cooper, at the bar of a dim space bar.
He is clad totally in leather, wears a towering hairstyle and silver chains, and has a blue colored drink in front of him. And we ask ourselves: who is here actually the extraterrestrial?
The photo is part of a new advertising campaign for the electronics company "Saturn" for the upcoming Christmas business.
Completly after the new campaign motto, "Now it really rocks!" the young rocker Kaulitz visits the rock legend Cooper in his space bar.
The meeting of the music generations: self-ironic, witty! Cooper and Kaulitz leave no rockstar cliche out in the ad.
Tokio Hotel producer and manager David Jost to BILD.de: "The TV spots and photos for this campaign were produced recently in a film studio in Los Angeles. The aliens and the set were developed and built specially for this advertising spot."
Until the end of the year, the singers will promote additionally to the TV and radio spots, on magazine ads, billboards and in the Internet. Exactly one year ago Saturn presented Alice Cooper for the first time as its new advertising face.
Yay more voting! The People’s Choice Awards is the only major awards show where fans decide the nominees and winners. This year we have the chance to earn TH the title of “Favorite Rock Band”!! The best part is that the show will be broadcast live on January 5, 2011 at the Nokia Theater in LA. If the band is nominated and wins, they might just be able to show up in person since the twins will be in the US around that time to work in the studio!
