Looking Back: Virtual Insanity


This prothetic song from 96 signaled the great technological revolution of the 00’s. A momentous message is conveyed in this slice of effortless acid jazz pop. Virtual reality has become virtual insanity with people hooked into their Bluetooth’s and iPhones like Cyborgs.

With their hip neo soul trappings and hefty hat wearing frontman, Jamiroquai burst onto the scene in a blaze of funked out glory. Their 3rd release Travelling Without Moving yielded the megahit “Virtual Insanity”, due in part to its Jonathan Glazer-directed video, which featured lead singer Jason Kay’s Michael Jackson esque dance moves and some physics-defying images.

Any guesses on how they pulled this off? I have some ideas.
