The music video for the 1997 hit “Virtual Insanity” by Jamiroquai is perhaps one of the most iconic of that decade. Watching singer Jay Kay try to stay upright on that moving floor is burned into the minds of so many people who grew up in the ’90s. Well, we’re now able to relive those days again with the Jamiroquai Game for PC.
Only available for Windows (sorry, Mac users!), the player controls a man who looks somewhat similar to the British funk singer, as you try to avoid rogue couches while hearing a musak version of the song. Its brilliance is truly in its simplicity. Now, if only someone could create other simple video game versions of the best ’90s music videos, like a Beastie Boys “Sabotage” sandbox action game or an Aphex Twin “Come to Daddy” survival horror game. Maybe just the first one, the latter would be frightening.
Just for good measure, here’s the original:
