Yesterday, I shared the first video for Opportunities.
Today. I’m sharing the second version. The second version was released after the song itself was remixed and re-recorded. This is the version that subsequently became a hit for the Pet Shop Boys. This is the version that is currently being unironically used by Allstate in their commercials.
(As much as I complain about this song being used by Allstate, it did lead to both Opportunities and West End Girls reentering the charts.)
The director of this video is the Polish artist and filmmaker, Zbigniew Rybczyński. Before directing this video, he won the 1982 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film for Tango.
