Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc. (Official Video)


The official music video for the Gorillaz song Feel Good Inc, lead single of the band's 2nd album Demon Days. It was released on May 9,2005 along with the single itself and was produced and animated by film production company Passion Pictures.

Synopsis[]

It appears to be morning, after a night of riotous partying in the tower of 'Feel Good Inc.', an immense edifice, above a futuristic industrialized city. 2-D wakes up and starts singing the song through a megaphone, while Murdoc plays the bass guitar and Russel joins in on drums. De La Soul appears on television displays on the walls and do their rap. Outside, Noodle's floating windmill island floats past, with Noodle playing the acoustic guitar. 2D looks up longingly at it through the window of the tower. The floating windmill is chased by helicopters which later in the El Mañana (Video) is shot down supposedly killing Noodle.

Notes[]

The music video has been reuploaded in full resolution with clarity in audio on the band's official YouTube channel.

The original upload has since been privated.

Trivia[]

  • The flying windmill island is heavily inspired by Miyazaki's 'Castle In the Sky' which Jamie has cited as one of his main influences in interviews.

  • A small portion of the song A Fistful Of Peanuts by the Spacemonkeyz is heard at the start of the video.
  • Feel Good Inc. is the only Gorillaz music video to have two different commentary versions.
