Blur – Ong Ong | Music Video
Blur have released new video for single “Ong Ong”, taken from their new chart topping album The Magic Whip, the video has been directed by artist Tony Hung. According to Music News, the song has said to have triggered Hung’s memories of 80’s gaming with references to Mario, Popeye, Dig Dug, Ms Pac Man, Circus Charlie, Fantasy Zone, Kirby’s Adventure, Mickey Mouse, Ghostbusters Stay Puft, Reservoir Dogs and of course, Atari.
The narrative is torn straight from a classic platform game and features Mr OK, the hero who rescues his beloved from the clutches of evils bosses. Within the song, Mr Ok meets with Mr Cream (Damon), Mr Brown (Graham), Mr Red (Alex) and Mr Black (Dave) as they continue their adventures in the vibrant video game world. Blur are set to take the road next week with their sold out tour which is happening all around the UK, including the Isle of Weight Festival.
