The members of Blur dive into the wacky and colorful world of video games in their new video for “Ong Ong” — literally.
Like a full-fledged Magic Whip-inspired Super Mario Bros. universe, the Tony Hung-directed visual follows Mr. OK (the bouncy, smiling ball seen in the band’s “Go Out” video) as he tries to save his girlfriend from the clutches of evil. Those animated villains include Damon Albarn as monstrous ice cream cone Mr. Cream; Graham Coxon as a bug-like character named Mr. Brown; and Alex James as Mr. Red, a huge blob. Seeing as how Blur brought us their very own ice cream flavor, here’s hoping I’ll be able to play the deliciously entertaining “Ong Ong” sometime in the near future.
