On February 18 2006, Shaun Woodford spoke to the BBC about how he was challenged to transform the back of an everyday van into a ’70s nightclub on wheels for Madonna’s Sorry music video.

Shaun said that when his customized car firm in Wales first received the request to pimp out the van with pink neon lights, lilac shag carpet and mirror disco balls, he thought it was a joke.

“We weren’t sure what to think at first! And it was only when we got the go ahead, that we knew it was for Madonna’s video.”

Shaun’s team at AB Styling Ltd were given one week to complete the job.

“Everything we needed had to be ordered in and there was a couple of moments where I thought it was going to be touch and go, but we did manage it.”

Shaun delivered the van on time and spent the week on set.

“It was a brilliant experience and by far the biggest job we’ve ever done – you can’t get bigger than Madonna.”

MTV documented and aired the makeover of the van in an episode of Pimp My Ride.

  1. Hello Madonna and Staff,

    Love your work at play!!!

    Question: Your concert was in Detroit around 2001, Me thinks, fuzzy a little by now. Purchased the DVD, loved the live concert and with Slash on guitar.

    Well, to cut a long story short, I need to replace it. And I cannot find it in Sydney, Australia, were I might trek auf to with cash in hand to re_place it in my library.

    I am not one to infringe upon others. Spiritual education and practice, makes this unbroken law, Law for me, as well as for you I Believe!

    Could you please let me know how and where to pick one up. The DVD, that is!

    Shalom and Blessings. Avon Ra Felidae
