Olympics 2008 Monkey Movie

Oh, yeah, I know this is only a marketing video, but... wow this video is fantastic!

It's possible that I'm so excited because it's based upon the traditional Chinese folklore Journey to the West.

Who's the creator of this fantastic cartoon?

The animation was by Jamie Hewlett and the music by Damon Albarn. They have also collaborated on a stage production of Journey to the West, and are famously the people behind Gorillaz.

The video is the opening title sequence for the BBC's Olympics coverage... and it's brilliant!
