The footage of Björn and Agnetha was taken in Lasse Hallström's apartment; the close-up singing shots (in the pink/purple/blue shiny suits) were filmed in the Polar offices.
The party footage was shot at the same time as that of the Super Trouper PROMO only the circus performers were replaced with balloons.
An official 'Millenium edit' video was produced at the end of 1999 as one of Polygram's last projects. It was used for the 1999 single.
Compare 'Happy New Year' and 'Felicidad' here (with clever use of the pause/play button!):
