Remember turning on Plastic Beach for the first time and being drifted away to Gorillaz imaginary island starting with the openeing track “Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach”? If so, you will be happy to know that Gorillaz + Snoop Dogg have released a video for the track as part of Damon Albarn & Co’s advent calendar.
The Gorillaz advent calendar has been a fun way for the Damon Albarn vehicle to give back to the vocal and passionate fans that have helped them become one of the largest touring acts in the world. Every day, a new present arrives, like Kanye West but on a different time-frame. Well this morning, anyone who opens the little door will treated to something cooler than a candy bar. [via]
