My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #83

#83: "Virtual Insanity" - Jamiroquai
Release Date: 1996
Director: Jonathan Glazer
Fun Fact: The song won four awards at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards including the Best Video of the Year! It was actually nominated for 10 different awards!
Another music video that brings me back to my childhood. I remember being just completely and utterly mesmerised by this video, questioning the laws of physics at a young age. Jamiroquai does a fantastic job of making the unreal seem real with his dance moves on the moving floors, and the bleeding couches at the end were an odd yet symbolic image of things doing thing that seem impossible. "Virtual Insanity" is just a fantastic video that will always be remembered as a classic.

Where is Jamiroquai nowadays though? He seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth!

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
