Music video

Directed by Jamie Hewlett, the video for the title track consists mainly of static drawings of the Gorillaz placed against real photographs and time-lapsed video footage of London streets. Some of the drawings are animated, especially the ones featuring 2-D singing. The video finishes with the four band members (and 2-D’s headache pills) flying across the screen during a fast-motion shot of a tunnel. Graffiti artwork by Banksy can be seen halfway through the video (2-D makes a reference to this in Rise of the Ogre, saying “At first I wanted to be a vandal like that bloke Banksy”). Several times during the course of the video, an image of a scaly, dark red creature is flashed on screen briefly, revealed discreetly on the band’s website to be Satan. A stylized duck head, an Easter egg in early Gorillaz videos, can be found as a tattoo on the arm of Russel. It can be seen right before the camera cuts away after panning across the city streets. This was the Gorillaz’ first video, which inspired them to go for a completely animated look. 2D commented: “it’s amazing how young we look in this!” in Rise of the Ogre.
