|||||El Manana - Gorillaz||]|
Just saw the video for "El Manana" by Gorillaz.
First off, FANTASTIC video. I haven't been this impressed by a Gorillaz video since Feel Good Inc. I've been finding their recent videos rather poor.
But holy SHIT was it depressing. Seriously, I want to cry.
Showed Mother and even she went "oh god, that's awful"
Noodle dies. Noodle is happily relaxing on the floating windmill, then the helicoptors catch up to her, shoot the thing down, she clings on to it and the fear in her eyes is just so tear inducing. It crashes into the ground and pretty much explodes in flame, and just to make sure, JUST TO MAKE FECKING SURE, a bomb is dropped from the helicoptor onto the destruction site.
Okay, depressing I though, very depressing, and moving. It works well with the sound of the music.
But, Noodle's not dead. It's just for the video. (OKAY, I know they're cartoon characters so they can't actually DIE, but you know what I mean)
Well, that's what I thought, but, going to Kong Studios, they've cleared out Noodles room.
Are they going to make a replacement character? That won't go down well, Noodle's ridiculously popular.
The fans are reeeeeally not gonna like this.
I think el Jamie and el Damon have made a huge mistake if it is true, but, sure, I really doubt they care what people think.
Not having a downer on them, hell I adored blur and damon's voice, and Jamie's characters are wonderful, but I doubt they care what anyone, including adoring fans, think of them.
