Synopsis

The video starts with a shot of the gate of Kong Studios leading the camera to the window of the Evil Twins lurking out. The camera then follows Noodle on her tricycle through the hallways of the building, until she gets past the doors to the room where the rest of the Gorillaz are performing.

The Gorillaz were seen playing their instruments on a futuristic game court in Kong Studios. The game consists in trying to prevent balls hitting a target (the balls are fired at his speed from cannons) with your body. The more balls that hit the target, the more points the opposing team gets. Suddenly Del appears and starts rapping. 2-D, Murdoc and Del all play rounds of the game. Del stops all the balls with his great strength. Next up is 2-D; he tries to dodge all the balls by dancing (more notably pelvic thrusting), but still ends up getting hit and hurt. Finally Murdoc has a go, and he deflects the balls using his crotch. At first he is successful but ends up being incapacitated after too vigorous a thrust.

Additional Information

Damon and Jamie have said the futuristic game in the video is based on an idea in the 1969 French film 'Mister Freedom'.
