The video for Elton John's song "I'm Still Standing" was filmed in which country?
"I'm Still Standing" is a song written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin, from John's Platinum-certified 1983 album "Too Low for Zero". Helped by a video promoting the song on then-new MTV, "I'm Still Standing" became a big hit for John on both sides of the Atlantic, peaking at #1 in Canada and Switzerland, #4 in the UK and #12 on the U.S. 'Billboard' Hot 100.
The video, directed by Russell Mulcahy, was shot in Cannes (InterContinental Carlton Cannes) and Nice on the Côte d'Azur in France and features the colours of the French flag. It was due to be shot over the course of two days, but a camera full of the first day's film was ruined when Mulcahy accidentally fell into the sea with it. Therefore, it had to be filmed again on another day.
