High" features K-Os on vocals.
The martial arts style video for "Get Yourself
High" was directed by Joseph Kahn. The
video's effects and animation was provided by an American company
called KromA. The video is composed entirely of footage gleaned from the 1978 Chinese martial arts film Shaolin yu Wu Dang (“Two Champions of Death”) except that the material has been altered so that, in addition to swords and knives, the characters wield vinyl records, microphones and headphones as weapons and appear to be singing the lyrics of the song. Get Yourself High, featuring vocals by Canadian rapper
K-OS, is the second track released from the Chemical Brothers’ new compilation album Singles ’93–’03 on Virgin.
KromA’s role was to integrate the computer-generated musical props into the 25-year-old film footage and to alter the faces of the characters so that they appear to be singing. For the latter, the studio used facial capture technology to record the lip, cheek and jaw movements of an actor reciting the lyric. The resulting data was applied to a CG head that, in turn, was textured, modified and blended with the film footage.
