Gorillaz Light The Olympic Torch For The BBC

Gorillaz guys Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn have put together a pretty sweet little promo clip for BBC Sports’s Beijing Summer Olympic coverage. I’m not much of an Olympics fan, so maybe this trippy cartoon narrative — based in part on Gorrillaz’ (and Chen Shi-Zheng’s) Monkey: Journey to the West — will be the only lasting impression I have from the games. It doesn’t seem very Olympic at first, but wait for the finale.


The Olympics start the same day as the Boredoms’ 88 BoaDrum. Both are sponsored by Nike.
