Pharrell’s new video is an anime produced by Takashi Murakami: it’s amazing, of course

You’ve got to give it to Pharrell Williams. Not content with releasing the biggest hit of 2013 and most viral music video of 2014 (444 million views and counting), and supplying the vocals and melody to the next best song of 2014, he’s now teamed up with legendary artist, Takashi Murakami, for his latest music video, It Girl.

Directed by Mr. and Fantasista Utamaro and featuring the animation of NAZ, this music video will have your retinas running for cover, such is the colourful, playful nature of the visuals, set inside a Japanese video game. Of course. It’s a return favour of sorts for Pharrell’s recent remix of the theme song for Murakami’s new film, Jellyfish Eyes. This is the final track off Williams’ album, G I R L, which came out in March.
