HAPPY directs new Gnarls Barkley music video

A new Gnarls Barkley video for the single "Run" (off their upcoming release) has been released for airplay. Directed by HAPPY duo Richard Farmer and Guy Shelmerdine, the 3:27 video plays off an American Bandstand send-up and includes B boys and girls busting out the moves. Infectious, fun, and potentially seizure-inducing.
Speaking of, from the Gnarls Barkley website: "Contrary to rumor, MTV and VH1 censors did not reject the video because of liability issues related to strobe effects and seizures. 'Initially, there were fears the video was going to fail the Harding Test,' says a spokesperson for the band. 'But, for the moment, indications lead us to believe the video passed.'”
Judge for yourself. Best have a spotter, just in case.

Cheers for HAPPY! Good peeps, those.
Disclosure: I’m nearly a relative to HAPPY: my sister to her husband to his cousin = is married to one of the Happy fellas. (Pay attention: it might be on the final.)
