Gorillaz Team up with the BBC for the 2008 Olympics

In what I found to be a pretty interesting collaboration the Gorillaz (Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett) have become BBC spokesmen for the Olympics. I think the Olympic Games just became a whole lot cooler.

The first animated video, "Journey to the East" plays off of a traditional Chinese tale, "Journey to the West." You can check it out by clicking the image...
Animation was done by Zombie Flesh Eaters and of course the music was produced and composed by Damon Albarn.
