I'm not sure if this video is as originally aired in 1979 or is a re-edit from a longer TV special but the visuals are amusing and I wasn't *not* going to mention the Barbapapa cutouts in the description if I know what those characters are.
This video isn't even included as an alternate on my ABBA Definitive Collection DVD (with all of the main "promotional clips" and some alternates), although, obviously, it's just one DVD and, as such, it can't possibly contain every single second of video of ABBA filmed anywhere in the world.
Off-topic, I can't get the drop-down menu with the band names to work in Chrome anymore and had to submit this using Internet Explorer (yeah, I don't have Edge on this computer).
Here's the regular "Promotional Clip" (what music videos were called before MTV) for "The Name of the Game", where they're playing a Fia-Spel board game (which seems to be a Swedish variant of Ludo): https://youtu.be/iJ90ZqH0PWI
Interesting. I thought the Barbapapa cutouts would have been a temporary promotion back in 1979, when the characters (originally created by Talus Taylor, an American living in France, in 1970) were still relatively new.
But, nope, it's a Barbapapa-branded children's ski centre in Rougemont, Pays-d’Enhaut, Switzerland that still seems to be in operation to this day (if the website is accurate): https://www.region-du-leman.ch/en/P521/barbapapa-ski-center-for-ch ildren
I'd have thought they'd have replaced the Barbapapa family with Minions by now, but I suppose Barbapapa is one of those kids franchises that's perennially popular in Europe.
