With the animations produced by motion designer Alice Backham and illustrations by renowned artist Stella Murphy, the trippy visuals showcase a retro television screen displaying a seemingly endless loop of colourful cartoon characters tailored to an adult audience. The cartoons presented vary between animals, superheroes, aliens, rotating fruit and ordinary people living their everyday lives. The immersive, vintage video complements the track’s bouncy bassline and brings the pop and dance elements of the production to life.
