Robbie Williams plans on reshooting controversial music video

The original video was banned in certain countries


Robbie Williams reportedly has plans to reshoot the music video for Rock DJ to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

In the original controversial video, Robbie is seen trying to impress a female DJ by stripping naked – before eventually resorting to removing his skin and throwing pieces of his flesh to a crowd.

Vaughan Arnell, who directed the video, told Metro: “Rob’s got an idea actually about him coming back to remake it.”

“It’s quite funny. I can’t tell you what it is but there’s talk about reshooting it in a really funny way.”

The graphic music video took five days to shoot, and caused controversy when it was released in July 2000.


The video was officially banned in the Dominican Republic for “Satanism”, and the director said they were “wanted in Papua New Guinea for cannibalism”.

Rock DJ won British Video of the Year at the 2001 Brit Awards, and the song itself picked up the award for British Single of the Year.
