Groovy!

I suck at video games. I am pinball aged and never quite caught the skills of the joystick. But this ad for the upcoming Rockband version of the Beatles is friggin' brilliant.

If one might interject a political comment the ol' Walrus might have agreed with: Isn't that an elephant (more-or-less) leading them all over a cliff?

What do elephants stand for in the US again?

From the standpoint of an animation student, that's friggin' brilliant. I wanna see that in HD now.

same cat did this as did the gorillas videos so i'm assuming a brit. which doesn't discount the elephantine imagery and associated political thingums.

It's a half elephant, half rhinoceros that walks on two legs.

And they're having tea on it's head.

And it stops before the cliff.

I think political references are more than a little bit of a stretch.

When you said that was the Gorillaz guy, psa, I assumed you meant Jamie Hewlett (who provided the Gorillaz art, concept, some part of the music, etc.), and I think a lot of other people did too. But it turns out to be Pete Candleland of Passion Pictures, who did indeed direct the Gorillaz videos. I don't see a lot of politically motivated stuff on his showreel, unless you count the "Dirty Harry" video, but you never know.
