MUSIC VIDEOS 40: Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Zephyr Song

Once again, award winning team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris have been given the task of translating Red Hot Chilli Peppers sounds into images for their latest track. With a far more surreal approach than their last car-chasing promo, these images are stolen from the psychedelic 60s era, where the motif, a scantily-clad Bond-style model, merges into a background of swirling colours and shapes. A fantasy world of computer graphics and live action, the kaleidoscope images pack the screen and vibrate to the music.
