There was a clip in "green and white" on youtube that had more cutaways to the audience than anything. They also edited out a verse. So, I made it true black and white, and edited the bits together to make a whole performance. The original lofi audio was from the TV studio and had claps mixed in, so I flew in the original track and compressed it a little. I made this because there were no real videos of this great band performing this great tune. The song was inspired by a Pepsodent toothpaste commercial. "You'll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your teeth with Pepsodent". http://youtube.com/watch?v=iPsoxmXjtfc
I do not own the rights to any of this, just a fan.

A copy recently surfaced with the Full Dick Clark intro and the missing verse. Time for another edit! Charles and Warren, bless you guys for the great tune!
