The music video has previously been privated on the band's official YouTube channel, but it's now been put back up in count of the other music videos being reuploaded in a higher resolution.
It's remained unchanged however, as it's still at a 320p resolution.
A helicopter has crashed in a desert, and 2-D, along with a bunch of small children, have survived the crash. He fires off a flare, hoping to attract the attention of rescuers. The other 3 members of Gorillaz (who are in the casspir), some ways away, see the flare, and head for where it came from. While waiting for them to get there, 2-D starts playing Dirty Harry on his fold-out keyboard and the kids sing along. When the APC arrives at 2-D, Bootie Brown rises out of the sand and starts rapping. When the song finishes they all get in the APC and it drives off, only to break down short of 20 feet away.

- The live action shots were filmed in the Swakopmund desert in Namibia, Africa, which is freezing in the morning, and 40 degrees in the heat of the day.
- Bootie Brown had to do take after take of the 'rising up from sand' shot, but never once complained.
- The APC was on loan from the Namibian armed forces.
