|Lead vocalist of Gorillaz is animated form|
|Lead vocalist of Gorillaz (animated) member of De La Soul lip-syncing|
The entire music video is animated due to the band’s original idea to hide their identity apart from De La Soul who appears on several cinema screens lip-syncing. Thus being a common convention among music videos. Another common convention used is that the majority of the focus is on the vocalist. As well as this during the introduction to the song three of the band members are focused on whilst playing or singing their retrospective parts. The shots featured in this sequence are mainly close-ups and medium shots showing the audience which band members are trapped.
The music video seems to feature two parts one being the present were the band seem to be trapped in an isolated building and the other being were the lead vocalist is viewing what it’s like to be free. The two are linked together due to the three isolated gorillas and the free gorilla playing the song as a band. As well as this the focus changes between the two groups when the vocalist places his hands upon a window and stares out of it, therefore signifying the shots were the audience watch the free gorilla could be a point of view. However this image appears to be in danger due to helicopters chasing the island throughout the music video.
