300 Kate Bush Impersonators Perform “Wuthering Heights” Video

In May, 2013, the Shambush! performance troupe paid tribute to the great Kate Bush and invited all interested Kate fans to join them in a Brighton park to recreate the famous video. You didn’t even have to look like her, and wigs and dresses were available onsite.

More than 300 participants heeded the call, allowing Shambush! to achieve its goal of setting the world’s record for the most number of people dressed as Kate Bush. (As one of the organizers pointed out, they would’ve set the world’s record even if it had only been the three of them.)

Wuthering Heights was released as Kate’s debut single in January 1978. It became a No.1 hit in the UK singles chart and remains Kate’s biggest-selling single.

Two music videos were created to accompany “Wuthering Heights.” In Version 1, Kate can be seen performing the song in a dark room filled with white mist while wearing a white dress — this was the UK release. In Version 2 Kate dances in an outdoor environment while wearing a red dress — this video was produced for the American release.
