did ya really fall?

Hi Katy, this site is great!!! In the Hungry Like the Wolf video when Simon is walking across the bridge, it looks as if he slipped through a hole. Was this planned or did he really fall? If so, was he alright afterwards? Always wondered. Cassandra

SIMON SAYS: "Oh Cassandra, I love questions like this. Wouldn't it have been great if the fall had been for real - and we'd had a second camera unit below just by coincidence for the cutaway shot. whoosh-s"
