Chemical Brothers Do It Again in Morocco

The Chemical Brothers have launched a music video for ‘Do It Again’, featuring Moroccan villagers moving in response to the dance music. A young boy escapes from a tooth extraction. Outside, in the field with the goats, he makes his brother promise never to let ‘them’ take his tooth. At that moment a mysterious cassette tape falls from the sky. A crazy journey evolves as the two brothers put the tape into a boom box, jive to the beat, catching lifts into the city. Everywhere they go, the music on their beat box inspires wild dancing, leading to strange and hilarious movements. Finally, with the help of the music, they find the resources they need (from a bank heist) for a new gold tooth, a car, a goat and supplies.

Lyrics for Do It Again

I’ve seen it pumped electric
I’ve seen it pumped electric
I’ve seen it pumped electric etc.

DO IT AGAIN

Oh my God, what have I done?
All I wanted was a little fun
Got a brain like bubble gum
Blowing up my cranium

All insane

Take my face and take my drug
Hold my bone up to the sun
Bang my drum and paint my face
On my plane to hyperspace

    I fail to see how this can be a “drug-themed music video” unless you are referring to repetitive beat music being a drug?

    Nonetheless, good track :)
