Pare Pare: Making the Video
This will be a first for a Turkish artist to appear on the world famous MTV show, via MTV Türkiye, with an exclusive screening of behind the scenes footage of Tarkan's second music video from his award-winning album Metamorfoz.
Under the direction of Altan Dönmez, the video was filmed against a concert's atmospheric backdrop, where Tarkan, in a melancholy, thoughtful and sincere role, gives life to a performer whom left alone at the show's end begins to reflect on his life.
In the MTV slot, viewers will be able to catch a glimpse of filming techniques, and reports with the crew and Tarkan himself.
The promo shows an excerpt of the artist commenting, "On stage in front of thousands of people, I sometimes feel I go into my own shell when I'm singing certain songs ... This song is emotional, everyone can take something from it."

It's well noted that this song has a special place in the artist's heart, who even shed a tear when performing it during the TRT recordings for the New Year show. The footage wasn't aired initially, but was inserted into a special repeat broadcast two months later.
"Making the Video" is an MTV show, consisting of fifteen to thirty minute episodes, which chronicles the process of filming various music videos. Usually the director outlines the concept of the video (or treatment) and the show often includes light-hearted and humorous moments. It always concludes with a première of the finished video.
The show first aired on July 11, 1999 and new episodes still air to this day.
