didn't the Dare video jsut come out?

anyways...eh this is prolly my least favorite video by them so far.I'm not a huge fan of reusing the same idea over again. The windmill was awesome the first time..but when I saw it again this second time I was jsut kinda "eh whatever"...

the visuals were still great tho.

That one just completely confused me. I simply can't make sense of a tiny floating rock with a windmill on top, that gets the living daylights shot out of it. And the lyrics didn't help un-confuse me either. . . ???

They blowed up the flying windmill. They blowed it up and it smashed. The video kind of makes me want to learn how to fly a helicopter so I can attack flying windmills in my free time.

i like it, to me the island represents bliss, your special chill spot etc, then you have the helicopters trying to shoot it down, they could represent problems, anything that can knock you out of your good mood. I think its cool.

The song's a very sad one, and on the album it comes directly after Feel Good. What I get is that they're trying to tell a story, one about sort of the downfall of hope.

Wish the music video was a bit more varied in its shots and storyline, but I liked it nonetheless. I like the song, too, so that helps.

This is a pretty cool mesmerizing video, you guys are over analyzing it :p


I like this way more than DARE, hell I could watch a feature film in this style.... ;)

I don't really think of it as re-using the same idea, it feels more like a 'part 2'. I hope they carry on telling the story, I'd like to know what happens after it goes down. Ongoing narrative in music videos, whatever next ;)

Hey thanks for that list by the way! I'm a gorillaz fanatic for the music and the animation.
