Did you know that apparently there are goblins living in London trash bins and that these goblins just love to dance? Well, if you’ve watched the video for The Chemical Brothers’s Midnight Madness, you do!
I have to admit that I was disappointed to learn that this video did not feature an actual goblin. Instead, it’s just a man in a goblin costume. (Oh well. I guess real goblins are camera shy.) When we first see the goblin, he’s played by Daniel Ilabaca. When the goblin starts dancing on stage, he’s played by the Algerian dancer Lilou, a member of Pockemon Crew. Speaking for myself, regardless of who is playing him from scene-to-scene, I just love how happy the goblin is.
This video was directed by Dom & Nic, who have been directing music videos since the early 90s.
