Who would like to have an uncle who reminds you every day to buy a plane ticket and go on a summer holiday to Jamaica? Everyone, right? That’s exactly what “Uncle John from Jamaica” is all about, Vengaboys’ follow-up hit song to “We’re Going to Ibiza.” Written and produced by Danski & Delmundo, the record hit the record stores in 2000 and was the fourth track on The Platinum Album.
All scenes for the video clip were shot on 16mm film. In the early 2000’s the video was digitized and uploaded to Youtube.
