"Video, Video" was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1982, performed in Danish by Brixx.

The song was performed 13th on the night, following Spain's Lucía with "Él" and preceding Yugoslavia's Aska with "Halo, Halo". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 17th in a field of 18.

The song is in praise of the then-new technology of video recorders, with the singer describing the wealth of viewing he has on tape — everything from Humphrey Bogart to Wimbledon. Indeed, he remarks that "Susanne" (possibly a lover) has left him because all that TV has made her (Susanne) "raving mad" and that he (the singer) is "not all normal".

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1983 Contest by Gry Johansen with "Kloden drejer".
