Crisp N' Fresh: Gorillaz Go On A Death Race

Tuesday, March 2, 2010


High speed chases in dusty sport cars abound in the visual for Gorillaz's stellar single, "Stylo". If "Stylo" didn't make you picture driving at high speeds down a dusty highway, then prepared to have your thoughts scrambled. Since I have profusely loved the living life out this song, there was nothing more that the video could do to make me enjoy the it any further. Yet, there is something ambitious here, not to mention the most exciting five minutes of a music video we'll get all year. It is action packed that plays more like a demented Fast and the Furious, with 3/4 of the Gorillaz gang racing from the law, complete with blazing shoot-outs. The ending gives us an inkling that this chase isn't over and it should arise with the next visual (my money is on the De La Soul assisted, "Superfast Jellyfish"). 

Oh, you'll either laugh, give the ultimate side-eye or be perplexed out of your noggin' when you see Bruce Wills popping up as a road assassin. I did all three. See cool and geeky collide in the most entertaining way.

Plastic Beach will be in stores March, 9th.
