And once again (as with dghac) the picture and sound quality of the video on the official site is absolutely appalling. I really don't think anyone who cares about the band would think this is a good way to experience the music or the video, it's been compressed to hell so it looks and sounds terrible. :evil:

Luckily we live in the broadband age and others who care more about the band than those in charge of content for the official site have put it up on youtube (as linked above) in watchable quality so well done them and shame on those who got paid to do a worse job than someone did sooner and better in their spare time :roll:

Gotta agree with you - the quality of the videos was pretty bad, I suppose I expected better from the website, but like you said, YouTube have got lots up there - it's just a pity that they have better quality video of the song than the official site.

Here's an article about the moon buggy used in the video...

Jay Kay moon buggy project for ‘Runaway' video

In August this year Storm Buggies received a mysterious phone call from the UK’s leading special effects company Artem regarding something quite unique, news came of a secret project to turn one of our road legal buggies into a fully working replica of the Lunar Buggy that graced the moon’s surface in the 1970’s only this time is was to be used for a mystery pop video shoot located slightly closer to earth!

We waited several weeks and just as we thought the project had gone cold we received a phone call from Artem director Bob Thorne saying “We have the go ahead from the production company, when can you get a buggy up to us�

The very next morning a buggy was on its way from the Storm warehouse in East Sussex up to Artem in London.

Artem now had just 9 days left to build a working replica of the Lunar Rover to be used for Jay Kay ‘Jamiroquai’ to drive in his latest music video for the track “Runaway�.

Direction was provided by Jay Kay himself through production company Draw Pictures.
Special Effects Designer/Supervisor - Bob Thorne, commented;

“With such a tight deadline there was no room for error. We started with a brand new road legal dune buggy, which we had to stretch and remove the roll cadge from before imaginatively dressing it to look like the 1970’s version.

Once work was completed we had to have a vehicle inspection to ensure the vehicle was still considered road safe, which we thankfully sailed through the day before the night shoot.

Jay drove it round various London locations - including Tower Bridge, Piccadilly Circus and the A40 - wearing a space suit from the era and attracting plenty of interest from passers by and the media.

The original 1970’s vehicle had a top speed of 8mph. Ours was doing 50mph once run in. Pretty good, but still somewhat slower than his Ferrari Enzo!�

Storm Managing director Ian Batten and shareholder Rob Scantlebury went on shoot in London with Jay and the production team and discovered that Jay was so impressed with the buggy that he was going to be keeping it!

When asked by Ian if it would go fast enough Jay commented that he would “Use it for a bit of fun in the summer�

Runaway is one of two new songs on a Jamiroquai Greatest Hits album to be released later this year.

I think it's a fab video (as usual!) and I love watching him no matter what he's wearing. How on earth could Denise Van Outen give him up???? :wink:
