Thanks for sharing, I wonder what it will be like, since the spoilers I've heard are ridiculously funny.

There is some chance for this video as Chris is going to be (at least) visible, right? I don't know other spoilers, but hopefully it will be enjoyable, just like "Wast it Worth It?".

Maybe I am old fashioned, but on last Monday an information surfaced that they had filmed a video two days earlier. So tomorrow is the fifht day after the date of filming? Is it possible to prepare and edit a good video in such a short time? I am not an film maker...

Depends... A 5 minute video is easily doable in a week. Especially when you have done some good pre-production. It all depends on the storyboard. Also, they themselves were filmed, maybe there already was plenty of already edited material.

I just want it to have a glitter, after all of these miserable videos since....hmm... Love Etc. (it's animated, so it doesn't count properly)...hmm...Minimal? Yeah, I think Minimal was the last nice video. Simple but elegant.

Beat me to it.
Yes there's an official music video and a live premiere on the album's release!

https://youtu.be/JPx8P8pcrdA

The video is described in the Gaydio interview. It actually includes Neil & Chris, apparently!
I'm glad to see them doing any form of promotion, and it's a nice surprise this is releasing with the album rather than the single.

Where's this info about them filming last Monday?

I don't see why it would have to take more than 5 days post production, can't be that hard surely. Especially when it's a music video you're only editing the film and not the sound. If it's all plotted out before filming then it's a matter of piecing together as planned.
Also "good" is subjective. I personally don't find advanced and complicated videos good at all, I find them abrasive to the senses if anything. Less editing time=more simplistic video, maybe? It's a day away so speculation isn't really worthwhile.

Monkey Business Lyrics:
I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around
I’m here on monkey business
and look what I found

Everybody get on board
I'm back in town
and I'm not leaving
’til the last joint has shut down
People tell me I'm a legend
round these parts
I start the party
and I end up breaking hearts

Bring me margaritas
champagne and red wine
We’re gonna have a party
where we all cross the line

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around
I’m here on monkey business
and look what I found

I’m not dealing with the real world
anymore
Been there, done that, came back
and I know the score

Flew in from the city
Just got into town
Checked into a new place
I can’t seem to settle down

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around
I’m here on monkey business
and look what I found

I’m here on funky business
Just playing around
I’m here on funky business
Look what I found

There are diamonds in the sky
that shine for me
Gonna pick them one by one
I guarantee

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around
I’m here on monkey business
Look what I found
Just playing around

Hanging from the rafters
I’m a chimpanzee
What I do for afters
you’ll just have to wait and see

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around

Bring me margaritas
champagne and red wine
We’re gonna to have a party
where we all cross the line

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around
I’m here on monkey business
and look what I found

Entered by the back door
Straight into the bar
Checking out the dance floor
Well I like who you are

I’m looking for monkey business
Just playing around

Produced by Fred Bonham Carter. Related, maybe, to Helena Bonham Carter?

I am happy that the video is for full album version as it includes additional lyrics.

I have just seen the name of the video director. Very renowned person! I like many of his work!

I think there is a proper video (maybe with the full version of the song) on the way, this is the main single from Hotspot (because it works to introduce the album). I don't think they are going to put a single cover and that's all. You know, there is not a lyric video. :twisted:
And I said on another post (I can't find it now :lol:), I thought they'd go for the full album version. I thought PSB would realize fans wanted to listen the full version, there is no need to play only the edit version and it's a good way to show the album.

I'm starting to think they read my mind. :mrgreen:
