There’s a lot of work that goes into the production of a music video. While you can’t help but imagine that what you see on the screen is real, that David Bowie and Mick Jagger are harmoniously dancing in the streets in the mid-1980’s, it is not the case at all.
A new perspective is provided when you remove the music from the video, and it’s pretty hilarious to watch. Imagine Bowie and Jagger acting out these moves – especially without the high energy of the original tune. Thanks to YouTube user Strack Azar, you can watch the silent video below:
The voices in the video are obviously not those of the two rock icons, however they provide a pretty hilarious impression of what the silent-take might’ve sounded like.
