Watch The Mad New Blur Video ‘Ong Ong’

Britpop legends Blur have just released their video for the bouncy, charming “Ong Ong”; it follows their “Lonesome Street” clip as the second video from their reunion album The Magic Whip, and it’s a good one. The video delights in absurdity. Most of it is an animated version of a fictional old video game, with one Pac-Man-esque sphere on a quest to get his girlfriend back. In its romantic narrative and its devotion to cuteness, it’s pretty close to Blur’s classic video for “Coffee And TV.” And we also get to see the members of Blur dressed up as the characters from the game. Tony Hung directed it, and you can watch it below.[via Stereogum]
