This entry details a long-form video that was aired inside the Glam Slam clubs owned by Prince in 1995 (Glam Slam West and Glam Slam South) and The New Power Generation Stores in Minneapolis and London. The video was nicknamed Tora Tora Wallpaper or Glam Slam Wallpaper but the tape was actually labeled 95 Tour Wallpaper (although it was shown only in clubs and not during The Ultimate Live Experience Tour shows). 95 Tour Wallpaper was never released to any television stations, included in a Home-video or DVD or streamed on one of his official websites and is therefore considered as unreleased. This 60-minute in-house video contains footage from various sources. The audio however is an exlusive mix (probably made by DJ Brother Jules) of songs by other artists unrelated to Prince and released between 1990 and 1994. Snippets and samples from tracks by Prince/ that were still unreleased at that time are also included in the mix. Although not a promotional video per se, it is included here as it contains excerpts of unreleased videos and for the sake of completeness.

The visual parts consists of computer generated graphic, large excerpts of the 1968 film Barbarella (referenced on multiple occasions by Prince) and the 1987 film The Gate. It also features scenes of dancers at the Glam Slam nightclubs (including performances by the Erotic City dancers with Sharon Ferguson), models walking on a catwalk or posing, The Beautiful Experience TV-special, pages from the 10,000 magazine and clips from unreleased videos : The Same December, 18 & Over, Zannalee, Empty Room, Days Of Wild (and possible snippets from P. Control with the dancers). Throughout, Tora Tora urges the crowd to have fun.

The audio is a mixed compilation of Hip Hop, R&B and ragga artists with bits and snippets of vocals lifted from songs planned for The Gold Experience album.
