Hello everyone,

So here in Europe on the German TV there is a vodafone commercial. It had some kind of catchy song that kind of creeped it's way in my head, like it sometimes goes with music.
So I had to look it up and when I first started the official clip I forgot to breathe for a small moment. The first thing seen is something very familiar to me. I finished the song and clip to see if I can find more...Well I couldn't, maybe some one else will?

So the thing I noticed at the start of the music clip was a building that looked a lot like the Swiss Temple... And I mean a lot!
Here is a link to the clip:

You'll see it from the 2nd second until about 15 seconds.

and for reference:
http://www.ldschurchtemples.com/bern/gallery/
Here you can find pictures of the Switzerland Temple.

I know the temple from pictures pretty well since it is the place my parents got married for the church (as I call sealing).

I also prefer to just talk about this kind of stuff here.
Soooo my wonders is there some kind of double meaning in the clip?
Are there more buildings that look like lds temples in the clip? I am sure some of you may know some other buildings better... or are the other buildings just some fantasy buildings?

Just went on google (between writing this post) in wonter if others noticed too and found an other clip from the same artist. It seems to be connected as a story of what happens before is. Since this ends with the Swiss temple:

So very interesting. What is the story behind the clips? Does anyone know more than I do?

Wilkommen! Your English is very good.

I do not know about the Swiss temple or why it would appear in the music clip. Perhaps the architecture of the temple was the reason it was used for the video. Perhaps Neuschwanstein was too far away. Both are based on fairy tales.

And, yes, it totally looks like Swiss Temple.
