Praise You

I was looking for a decent quality version of Fatboy’s Praise You video, but couldn’t find one. What I did find was this. It’s a behind the scenes look at the making of the Praise You video written by one of the dancers. I found it very interesting, albeit very difficult to read with that background. Here’s a taste:

They wanted us to look as though we were this very serious amateur dance troupe performing the routine to FatBoy Slim’s song for the first time. We supposedly had been rehearsing for months for this big performance, and we were dressed to look like dancers from the eighties. They also didnít want anyone to know that we were taping a music video, so the cameramen were dressed like tourists and they used small digital cameraís that looked like tourist camcorders. They just mixed into the crowd.

If you haven’t seen the video yet (like me), you can see a very low quality version here, but it’s almost annoying to watch. If someone can hook me up with a better one, I’d be much obliged.
