Music Video

The video for "(Don't) Give Hate a Chance" is Jamiroquai's first-ever computer animated music video and pays homage to the Italian cartoon La Linea. To promote the release of the video, Sony BMG organised the video to be projected on a number of outdoor venues around central London, including the walls of the Chelsea Barracks military grounds and a car park in the Soho district. A replacement to the original video appeared in late October, which included changes such as the ground being replaced by plants and rocks and significant changes to the final minute of the video. The title of the song is a reference to the song "Give Peace a Chance" by John Lennon.
