"I See You Baby" is a song by British duo Groove Armada. It features Gram'ma Funk on the vocals. The track was also recorded with the chorus line "shakin' that thang" (to replace "shakin' that ass") for various markets around the world, and also for use in American TV commercials. The song was later remixed by Fatboy Slim, with this latter version appearing in airplay. It was also remixed by Futureshock.
The Fatboy Slim remix featured extensively in a Renault Megane television advertising campaign in the United Kingdom in 2003. The Futureshock dance version is used as the theme for the show MTV Cribs since 2000.
Although the single only peaked at number seventeen in the UK Singles Chart upon its original release on 15 November 1999, it became very popular due to its inclusion on its parent album Vertigo, and various dance compilations. A reissue of the song on the compilation album The Best of Groove Armada saw it reach a new peak of number eleven on the chart almost five years later on 20 September 2004.
The first version of the music video features women in an aerobics class, exercising to the song. Groove Armada's second version of the music video features a security guard, played by David Pires, watching women and some men stripping in a restroom.
