It was the Fa Fa Fa Fa Fashion...
15 February 2003 | by (Heywood, Lancashire, England) – See all my reviews

In the mid 1980s, thanks mainly to Michael Jackson, seemingly everyone and their codfish was making overlong promo videos with stories on either side of the song.

David Bowie only made one of these - but it's far better than most. The story is that Bowie's character, Vic, manages to impress a girl enough with his false tales of being friends with rock star Screaming Lord Byron, and for some reason says he has tickets for his gig that week - the hottest gig in town!

Bowie manages to get her a ticket, but not himself, and the opening part of the video sees his ridiculous attempts to get past security while Byron (also Bowie) prepares for the gig by doping himself up and moping about in a stereotypical rockstar manner.

Post performance of 'Blue Jean' from Byron, Bowie and his date meet the star... with disasterous consequences, and a funny exchange between Bowie and the director about what 'should' happen...

A classic video, and now easy to own thanks to the 'Best Of Bowie' dvd... as long as you can work out how to find it (hidden easteregg) that is...
