That is how I thought they did it when I first saw it.  But then when I got older I thought, no, they must have used a green screen. I can tell it's a green screen because everything looks fake!  But nope, it really was a room on wheels.

Nice find subby.

But for some reason this made me feel REALLY old. I guess seeing how age rewrote the contours of the lead singers face really got to me.

I remember when that video was on heavy rotation on MTV2 because they were still showing music videos then, unlike MTV.  2 years later, MTV2 was all Real World and Jersey Shore.

When that video came out, full frame cgi was generally awful. Especially for music videos. Great video though. I love when people use practical effects.

Marta Altesa is very talented and very beautiful.

I think Jamiroquai had her on stage with them when they toured South America.

My man did a LOT of blow. With that comes booze and cigarettes. He and I are about the same age, and while I'm not half as pretty as I used to be, I held up better than that.

Nope, thought the floor was moving around - no idea it was the room - clever --- shame there was no real behind the scenes footage

Why post a photo that's clearly not him, just to perpetuate a goofy association one Twitter user made on 1/6/21?

Great band, and British at that.

To quote Chris Rock, if that guy was all black, he could have done all that without the conveyor belts.

That was a one-off joke that Chris made during the MTV Awards that year. I thought it was funny.

No lie. I started watching it, then skipped slightly ahead, then skipped ahead...it's all people talking with some graphics depicting various things. The ONE thing I wanted to see, footage of them doing that stuff, is nowhere to be found.

Was slightly disappointing to not see that I agree, but I guess no-one thought it would have been that interesting to watch at the time.

It's funny. I thought of Jamiroquai the first time I saw that dude, I'm sure I'm not alone by far. Dude pissed off a lot of people with that get up because of the association.
