“Personal Service Announcements” is a series of videos released by Anderson in 1989 alongside her album “Strange Angels”. They were produced and aired on commercial television channels including MTV and VH1. Anderson had been asked by the recording studio to make a video which she found conceptually difficult so instead created a series of self-contained video pieces to promote the album.
