Pop Music Videos
Video set in a laboratory where crazy monkeys rock out to crazy beats. At first, their performance threatens to be cute, but on closer inspection, the monkeys have human faces, which shocks the spectating manager. Over the course of their performance the monkeys grow more and more agitated, smashing and eating their instruments before attacking the manager. As he flees, we see men with animal faces and animals with human faces, sadistic doctors and scientists, and eventually, their new plan, to transform the manager, who has seen too much, into a monkey 'manimal'.

It was certainly not everybody's idea of ideal Christmas viewing but was compelling all the same for the 14.5m viewers who watched.
