Runaway video shoot

In the video for the single Runaway, Jay is seen driving a lunar moon buggy around the streets of central London.  The buggy in question is from a company called Storm Buggies, and after starting out as a road buggy was converted to a "fully working replica of the Lunar Buggy that graced the moon’s surface in the 1970's".

Storm Buggies have added a page of information and photos onto their website about their involvement in the video.  Part of the page reads...

Jay drove it round various London locations - including Tower Bridge, Piccadilly Circus and the A40 - wearing a space suit from the era and attracting plenty of interest from passers by and the media.

The original 1970's vehicle had a top speed of 8mph.  Ours was doing 50mph once run in.  Pretty good, but still somewhat slower than his Ferrari Enzo!”

The story also reveals that Jay himself was involved in the direction of the video:

"Direction was provided by Jay Kay himself through production company Draw Pictures."

The full story can be read at the Storm Buggies website.
