Showing off his toned body in tight underwear, Jason is seen pouting, throwing his arms around, saluting the camera and thrusting his body against a backdrop of a cloudy sky.

The video is for the song Run To The Sun, which was released in 1994, when Jason was just 26.

It came out four years after Jason competed in the Commonwealth Games as a diver.

Having only really been a modest diver (finishing eighth in the 1m springboard, 11th in the 3m springboard and 10th in the 10m platform in the 1990 Games), Jason quit the profession to venture into the world of show-business.

And this isn’t Jason’s first music video to come out of his closet: he can be seen shaking the stuff that God gave him in The Shamen’s video for their 1993 hit Comin’ On, one year before the Erasure appearance.

The star came across as a well-oiled dancing machine as he pumped his fists and thrust his hips in a pair of leopard-print pants in the video. 

Clearly, Jason was a popular choice for promos in the Nineties psychedelic-influenced electronic dance music scene.

In other appearances as a young performer, he was briefly in The Beautiful South’s Dream A Little Dream video in 1995 as well as few 1997 adverts for Lee Jeans and Soccer Nation.

Luckily Guy Richie saw something in the snake-hipped hunk and cast him in his 1998 British gangster film Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels.

Two years later he teamed up again with Richie for Snatch but it wasn’t until 2002’s The Transporter that Jason became a household action star name.
