    Something I did'nt notice until tonight, even though I've seen the video over a dozen times, is that on the drummers hat in the video is that he has the ENCOM logo from Tron Legacy on his hat. Pause at 2:29 in to see it. What's funny about it is that the music video came out in 2005, and Tron Legacy came out in 2010.

    The video was uploaded in 2010, the music was made in 2005. Sure the video itself isn't newer than the music for it?

    It's not just the Encom logo that's on the hat. If you pay attention to the top where it says "ENCOM', you see the five colored stripes similar to the interface desk that Dillenger uses in the first film (and what Flynn uses in the second one).

    Good eye, BTW. I've seen that video countless times and never really noticed it.

    Yeah I saw the stripe on the hat as well did'nt know what it was though. It would make for a really good prop if someone made it.

    Nope, it's the 1982's version of the ENCOM Logo…

    I'd guess it's a throwback to the game Tron 2.0.

    Not Legacy.

    That or a throwback to the first TRON film, which makes sense because it seems that only the fans of TRON know of the TRON 2.0 game (as well as the Killer App game for Gameboy Advanced). And we don't know if the creators of the Gorillaz are hardcore TRON fans or not.
