Animation is expensive.
You're totally right, but still this is 1 million times better than their previous Jack Black video. Seriously, what the hell was that???
He's so great, but sometimes it feels like he's putting content out just to put it out. As a fan I can't say I'm mad about that, I just wish he'd curate it a little more. The Fall had some great tracks, but also some of the worst tracks on their entire discography.
Unfortunately not too surprising after reading how Damon Albarn made The Fall entirely on an iPad while on tour.
Apologies in advance for the rant.
Gorillaz are my all time favorite band by far, but some of their videos like this one have been very lazy to me. Take a looping 12-24 frame animation and loop it like 200 times... throw that into AE with some crazy background, turbulent displace, chromatic aberration, 2.5D camera move, and boom it's done. I wish they would just release it as a "visualizer" instead of a real music video. To be fair, the unexpected stop motion element was really great, but not enough to make me like the video overall. Humility was a much better video to me.
