Gorillaz - The Pink Phantom ft. Elton John & 6LACK (Episode Seven)

The official music video for the Gorillaz song The Pink Phantom, seventh single of the album Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez. It was released on 9 April 2020 along with the single itself and was produced and animated by animation studio The Line.


2-D, Elton John and 6lack perform a lavishly pink and emotional song inside Kong Studios during a thunderstorm. In the meantime Murdoc tries to catch the Pink Phantom with a butterfly net. After the song ends, Murdoc enters the room dressed as a matador, strumming his guitar, when suddenly one of the strings snap, much to his displeasure.

  • The video is based on the opening credits of the 1975 comedy film, The Return of the Pink Panther.
  • Elton John was presented in animated form in this music video as per his personal request to Jamie, as a longtime fan of Gorillaz.
  • Murdoc's tiptoeing throughout the room in the video matches the rhythm of the song.
