I love Fatboy Slim II

His music, his videos.

The music stands on its own but when you see his videos Fatboy Slim is even better

Am I rambling? I saw the video "Weapon of Choice" when it first came out in 2000. I only saw it once [no cable] and was pleased to learn that the video won six MTV awards in 2001.

I heard Praise You and read about the video. I thought it was a joke that an dance group would choreograph this tune. And it was. Spike Jonze is the dance troup leader under the pseudonym Richard Koufey. He made the video. In 2001, Praise You was listed as the best video of all time by MTV viewers. Does it still stand up today? I think so. But I'm a fan.
