Becoming the Smash hit of that summer, However when Bangalter was offered a £3 million (approx. $3.81 million American dollars) in deal for a full Stardust album, he declined.
The music video was directed by Michel Gondry. It features a boy who has just purchased a toy plane. Back at home, while he builds his plane, he switches channels on his TV to a program which features the top 5 chart songs. Some of the music videos shown have Stardust themselves singing their new song. As the days pass by, the kid builds the plane and so Stardust start to peek to the #1 in the program. At the end, the kid finally puts to fly the plane, as it flies, it crashes in a near cloud in where Stardust is playing, they later send the plane back to the kid, waving at him.
