Addiction directors Simon and John have created the video for Moby’s latest single Jam for the Ladies. Mixing live action, 3D and puppetry, the video features a small ‘hip hop’ monkey and his friends who ‘put on a jam for the ladies’. The monkey puppet was designed by Simon and John, who used accessories like bling dollar jewellery to bring out its character, and Clear created and animated the video’s other character, a 3D tortoise. The video is a ‘pastiche of the hip hop video vibe’, says Addiction head of music video Siobhan Murphy. ‘It’s full of bling and classic hip hop style, but cheeky and humorous too,’ she adds.
