Gorillaz - Strobelite (Official Video)

The official music video for the Gorillaz song Strobelite, seventh single of the album Humanz. It was released on 7 August 2017 along with the single itself and was produced and animated by film production company Passion Pictures.

Synopsis[]

The band members are seen sitting inside a nightclub, with Russel asleep. Noodle gets up and struts toward the dance floor. She beckons for 2-D to join her and pulls him in with a lasso made of light. The pair dances as Peven Everett begins to sing. As the dancing goes on, Murdoc sneaks away toward the bar and meets up with a mustachioed man in a red fez. The mysterious man slips Murdoc a white card with a symbol on it. Murdoc turns away and grins. Noodle, 2-D, and the rest of the club patrons continue to dance to the music, blissfully unaware of the exchange that had just transpired.

Trivia[]

  • Later when Murdoc was in jail during the #FreeMurdoc Campaign he claimed that the man that he met with at the bar had framed him and was actually El Mierda, a druglord, demon and kingpin of an infamous crime syndicate. A few months later, Noodle discovered that he was just an innocent salesman called Juan and Murdoc lied about him for a publicity stunt.
  • The video features several big cameos. The man that Murdoc talks with is played by Phil Cornwell, Murdoc's voice actor and the man dancing at the beginning of the video is Russel's voice actor, Remi Kabaka Jr. Later in the crowd apperances make Vince Staples, Posdnous from De La Soul, Jehnny Beth, Jamie Hewlett and Seye Adelekan.
  • The music video uses the Strobelite (Radio Edit) and not the full version of the track.
  • Russel is the only band member in the video who appeared as a two-dimensional character while everyone else had a three-dimensional model.
  • Originally Russel was supposed to be the one punching the DJ at the beginning of the video, but it ended up being cut for budgetary reasons.
