Found hidden amiga mouse pointer in James Brown Is Dead music video!

I'm sure we all had at least one version of this on our amiga's back in the day. Well I decided to look up the official music video for it on youtube, and at 0:45, a WB 1.x mouse pointer can be seen at the bottom of the screen!!

I've always been 99% sure an Amiga was used to create this track, but I think it's REALLY cool that they included the mouse pointer to tell everyone that it definitely was.

Erm...well, the pointer seems to be only featured in that specific "Europe2TV" "Club 90's" broadcast of the video, so my wild guess would be:
That station used a Video-Toaster (or something like that) at that time, and somebody slightly messed up, else you wouldn't be seeing that pointer

I think the pointer belongs to the video, because it appears between two cut scenes.

That might be so, if the pointer was in the video from a different channel/Source, which at this time, it appears NOT to. Then the only other logical source, would be the TV station airing the clip.

[ Show youtube player ] which from what I can see is THE SAME video, but does not have the pointer.

It's obviously cut off on the other video. No one would have added it.

Always thought this tune sounded very similar to the techno levels from Apidya.

The bit at 45 seconds sounds identical to the start of the LA Style track.
