    ^ whats that? Ive been looking for this song and artist for ages.. he is a classic artist of electronic music... an icon within the development of gay musical culture in modern and 80's house music, and a timeless piece of the development of the artistic outlets of the "out" movement...

    Note the ways: ... the profuse use of androgynous dancers... the sexual nature of the champagne popping .... the juxtaposition of a (normally completely straight) hiphop style video with typical cinematography of classic cinematic movies with their quintessentially gay choreography and gay musical elements, denoted by the dancer's moves and the use of umbrellas....

    This is a must-know in gay pop culture... a classical piece of modern art as well ;)

    An explanation of the music video:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windowlicker#Music_video

    Dont forget, this was 1999, before the South park-Family Guy era.. thus, as a parody and musical style.. it was incredibly progressive at the time and nominated for several awards...
