Isn’t this the follow up to the Being Boring video.? Is where are those pretty people at the Hamptons house party ended up?

There was monkey business there too - on a tricycle if I remember correctly.

FWIW - I’m straight (not that it matters) and I absolutely loved the video! It’s fun, energetic and I believe every sexual orientation is represented - gay men and women, bisexuals, straight people and trans! All having a bloody good time all getting up to some Monkey Business!! And best of all, Chris is back doing some wonderful dancing!!!! Loved it
Its taken me all of my life to find you

Very ‘was it worth it’, which is no bad thing in my book. Loved the video - nice to see the boys enjoying themselves. The bloke pulling the scary face at 1:25 looks unnervingly like me. I had to do a double take!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Well I’ll take Sailor #1. The rest of you can fight over the rest!

Any idea who he is? One corny wink too many in the video but I forgive him!

Not a fan of the song, at all, but a real video is appreciated. Nicely done. :up:
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Both the song and the video are a joyful romp...brought me to tears. It's amazing after all these years they still bring the magic.

(and that smug, winking sailor...yowza)

Fabulous, fun video. Their best video since Together, I think.

Chris Lowe joining the dancing crowd was as unexpected as lovely.

Also, the radio edit doesn't do any justice to the song: it must be played in full craziness. Excited for tomorrow (well, tonight on Spotify).
True.

Radio edit cuts some of the best lyrics apparently.
