Happy Leap Day, folks! Before celebrating by bumping into Leap Day Williams on the street, take a gander at the just released video for Gorillaz collaboration "DoYaThing." The video features the combination of live action and 3D character rendering we last saw in director and Gorilla Jamie Hewlett (Tank Girl)'s "Stylo" video. The video features the morning routine of the Gorillaz gang at their apartment on 212 Wobble Street, London.
Looking like the digs of some broke college kids rather than the self-touted "world’s most successful virtual band" (Comic Book Resources), the video follows 2-D in his morning routine. Along the way, he's interrupted by Murdoc comically holding up the staircase by chairlift and later beating 2-D with the very shoe that inspired all this nonsense. Meanwhile, OutKast André 3000's apparition also haunts the cupboards and refrigerator, looking like Pimp Racer X.
Check out the video above and follow the jump for video storyboards and more.
Comics site Comic Book Resources has hosted, and I quote, exclusive storyboards by Hewlett for the video. Above is one of the funniest gags in the video featuring a glaring dissimilarity between Gorillaz' cartoon perception and "real-life" relationships. Head on over to CBR for those and then check out an interview with Murdoc over at Rolling Stone where he elaborates on stealing James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem)'s track and kidnapping André.
