To celebrate the release of the First Strike map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PS3, Activision has released a special edition 'Berlin Wall' trailer.

Normally, these videos have the requisite explosions, bullets and tough guy grunts. Sure, this one does too, but it also features two very passionate soldiers -- caught on opposite sides of the wall -- who are united through the magic of the 1990 German power ballad "Wind of Change" by Scorpions.

If you are not familiar with "Wind of Change," the lyrics reflect the band's feelings about the changing socioeconomic climate after the fall of the Berlin Wall. (And yes, Scorpions is the same band that rocked you like a hurricane and sent you an angel.) Germans voted it their "Song of the Century," while most Americans consider it "that one song that they used to play during couples skate."

Just stop what you're doing and watch it. A word of warning, though: the whistling will be caught in your head for the rest of the damn day.
