Jimmy Brown - 11th Aug 2010

Ben Newman delivers this surreal, memorable if rather unnerving seaside caper for Roots Manuva which sees the smartly-dressed rapper acting out his rhymes on the pebbles accompanied by three equally surreal Japanese (or pretend Japanese) dancers...

Plus unBergman-like coastal chess. Good to see Rodney back, with Ben showing again he has a real knack for this promo-directing lark.
