Music video[edit]

Fatboy Slim commissioned comedian and juggler Chris Bliss to perform to the song in front of a life theatre audience for a music video. The video expanded into a MySpace contest to "Juggle to music like Chris Bliss". The entries were narrowed down to eleven entries[1] including one non-juggling entry directed by Steve Glashier featuring Australian hula-hooper Angie Mack (née Humphries). John Augustus "Gus" Tate won the competition[2] and Angie Mack received honourable mention as the "Non-Juggling Winner" as the video so impressed Fatboy Slim.[3]
