I have a question to ask about the Innuedo video...

Why is John absent from it, if anybody knows, (theres like a cartoon character that replaces him) and if anybody knows, how did they come up for the concept of this video?

When you noticed that John is "replaced" by a drawing in this video, how did you not also noticed that no-one from Queen is actually in the video and the creator of this great video used early-90's computer technology to depict each member of Queen in a different artistic style (using clips from other videos, obviously)!?

It's not a problem, just I'm curious as to how you cannot tell that the rest of them are not actually there too!

Also, just so you, the clowns in the middle section of the song aren't real (-:

um, about the concept olp, Queen hired somebody named Gerry Hibbert, who went over Roger's Grandville pix ("Juggler of Universes" from the gorgeous cover), and developed the video from there

"Somebody named" Jerry Hibbert was Freddie's collegemate.

John is the Picasso type painting or drawing, he probably was'nt bothered what type of character he was made into, although he does introduce The Innuendo promo EPK video, no interviews from him though just Brian and Roger, he probably felt stressed and needed a sit down.
