Vertigo is the second studio album by the English electronica duo Groove Armada, released in 1999 on the Jive Electro record label. It contains the well-known single "At the River" and the track "I See You Baby", which has been used in adverts for the Renault Megane and the Ford Fiesta.[3] "If Everybody Looked the Same" was used in the 2000 films Gone in 60 Seconds, Miss Congeniality and Max Keeble's Big Move.[citation needed] The song was also used in the trailer for Down to Earth (2001 film). In addition, the song was used by AFC Ajax in their halftime program, involving children playing soccer, circa 2006.
