Blur dress as video game characters in the new music video for "Ong Ong".

The video follows an animated smiley face on his danger fraught adventure through a gameboy style universe to be reunited with his love. Blur cameo as utterly absurd real-life versions of their video game counterparts.

"Ong Ong" features on Blur's chart-topping new album The Magic Whip, which saw release earlier this year.

Blur are set to headline British Summer Time at Hyde Park and Isle Of Wight Festival later this month, following a run of warm-up shows across the country. A list of Blur's upcoming dates can be found at the bottom of this article.
