In the early '80s, Elvis Costello made an amusing video for his song "Everyday I Write the Book" featuring Prince Charles and Princess Diana lookalikes. I seem to be the only person in the world who remembers this video, so I was pleased to find it online.

2008 2012 2016 update: I've removed the original link to the video because it no longer works, but here it is elsewhere.

"Everyday I Write the Book" is from the 1983 Elvis Costello and the Attractions album Punch the Clock, which is a great favorite of mine. (Elvis Costello himself supposedly doesn't like it much, but I can no longer find a link to back that up, so who knows, maybe he does.)
