Just saw this in full for the first time yesterday, and found it slightly odd that there was not one clear picture of John Deacon - that he's been replaced with a Picasso-esque rendering. Anyone know why this is, and what do others think of the video? Ifound it very different but it does blend well with the songs different styles

I think it's cool, but a little boring after 6 minutes..

All part of the "covering up Freddie's condition" thing, I think. None of them is filmed afresh and all of them are "rendered" according to some artist's style.

Mostly I like the video, but it clearly showed "something was up". :-(

The band members are each rendered in a different style. Totally brilliant video.

And the animation director - Jerry Hibbert - was Freddie's collegemate, though they didn't met during making of video and Jerry was very sad about this.

No. It was on Greatest Flix II. If you want to see it try Kazaa or WinMX.-


He said that he wants to see it in good quality on DVD (the GVH3 - when it will be released) - not on the VHS.

I don't mind the video but i don't really like it that much. I think it was the way it was to help cover up his illness. Great song though. One of my favorite songs.


I don't think so. Freddie filmed in Headlong, Slightly Mad, Days of Our Lives, so I think he was able to film in Innuendo video if he wanted - it was just another way for making video and that's it.

Don't try to find AIDS in everything relates to Innuendo album.

Innuendo is one of my favorite videos by any artist! It's kind of odd, And it fits the dark image that the song always puts in my head. Very nice indeed.

i think the video shows just how far you could stretch an annimation application on a 386sx/25 pc with 4mb ram and a 60mb hard disk

still my pc back then was chucking out wolfenstein 3d and spear of destiny and i still had 40mb of hard drive left....mind you, windows came on three floppy disks back then

The video was a rude awakening for me. I first saw bits and pieces of it thinking 'meh.' But then I actually got a good look and was very much determined to own it (Greatest Video Hits 3 had better come out soon!).

The video is very fitting. I like how each member was given his individual artist rendering. It shows that they are individuals but putting their individual styles together made Queen what it was. The animation was a good change as well.

I think the innuendo video is one of the most brilliant, and most haunting ones you can find, certainly in the Queen canon. It's brilliant, I think-even if you spend the whole 6 minutes trying to figure out where the shots of the band are from!!

Plenty from the Breakthru video, I noticed.
