4. VIDEO: Jamiroquai, “Virtual Insanity”
YEAR: 1997

“Jamiro-WHO?” is what you’re probably asking yourself if you’re a millenial, and you’re not wrong to do so. Jamiroquai was a British acid jazz act fronted by a high-pitched dude named Jay Kay who became internationally renowned upon the release of this video, directed by the visionary Jonathan Glazer. This one-shot remains one of the coolest, “How Did They Do THAT?” videos in the history of the medium, and its striking visual look was aped in many videos afterwards (see: *NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye”, for starters).
