*“A warm-hearted chant-along declaration of fidelity.” – Mojo

Tony Hung, the award-winning British-born Chinese artist, has directed the video for blur’s latest track, the *‘warm-hearted chant-along declaration of fidelity’ which is Ong Ong, taken from the group’s latest chart-topping album The Magic Whip.

The track triggered Hung’s memories of 80’s gaming, with references including 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.

Along the way, he meets Mr Cream (Damon), Mr Brown (Graham), Mr Red (Alex) and Mr Black (Dave) as they continue their adventures in the vibrant video game world.
