Joji & Jackson Wang ft. Swae Lee & Major Lazer 'Walking' by Eoin Glaister
We've been here before, most memorably with Beastie Boys' Intergalactic. But Eoin Glaister puts a whole new spin on a classic Japanese monster movie trope for Joji and Jackson Wang.
So Giant Lobster (or Crayfish?) - played by Joji - is causing terror by smashing through the city. It must be saved by Jackson, stoically operating his Giant Robot. Battle ensues amid the cardboard skyscrapers, to the unseemly delight of Jackson's girlfriend.
But just when we think that Giant Lobster is vanquished, having been summarily poleaxed by Robot, there's a twist in the tale. It's very sweet - a kind of 'snowflake' revisionism that will enrage neo-conservative lovers of Godzilla films. So that makes it great.
What's more, there's also room for an enjoyable epilogue of Joji and Jackson having great fun, mock-fighting on set - until Joji's magnificent lobster/crayfish outfit starts falling apart...
