Jimmy Brown - 6th Nov 2013

Ben Dickinson gathers together Yoko Ono, Beastie Boys Mike D and Ad-Rock and Yoko's New York artist friends for the promo to Bad Dancer - a track from Plastic Ono Band's new album Take Me To The Land Of Hell. 

Conceptually based on the painting Yoko creates at the beginning of the promo, the video, which features some pretty bad dancing, was also inspired by Ono's past works including her 1966 piece Ceiling Painting.
