According to Wikipedia, "There are two versions of the video, much of the footage is the same, though used in slightly different places, and some shots have alternate angles. In the first version, the opening shot features a quick zoom on the stage, Steven Tyler blows into the camera, and he is not shown when the music starts in the forest interlude. In the second version, the opening shot features a slow zoom on the stage, a horse statue blows into the camera, and Tyler is shown when the music starts in the forest interlude."
The "Jaded" music video went on to win Best Hard Rock Clip of the Year at the Billboard Music Video Awards. It did not specify which version of the music video was the big winner.
