The video was not without its troubles and controversy. Originally shot last year for an SPCA event, it was only uploaded to YouTube for the enjoyment of the 60 volunteers who participated in it. Which is why nobody got the Abba song cleared ahead of time. The video wound up going viral and Universal Music Group had it pulled. Protests ensued. Months passed as the SPCA went back and forth with UMG, and finally they got approval for use as an “educational video.” A few months ago, it went live on YouTube in its original form once again.
If you have 10 minutes to spare and are curious, there is also a mini-documentary of the making of the clip.
