Taken from Gorillaz' third studio album Plastic Beach (2010), Superfast Jellyfish is a wonderful little song. Not only is it a clever comment on consumerist culture and society's dependence on disposability, but it is also very entertaining, which is more than can be said for a lot of other creative endeavors that put their message above artistic achievement. Gorillaz have never been known for such a thing and I feel they're not about to start now.
This video is on the more curious side of normal, mixing animation with live action - the signature style that you could say everyone's favourite virtual band is so well known for. Though let's not allow that assessment, however accurate, confuse us into thinking the video for 'Superfast Jellyfish' is anything like the others. It is both stylistic and unique in itself.
I've been talking like you're all fans already, and I guess I'm hoping that's exactly what you will be after this.
