Gorillaz x G-Shock “G-Time is Now” Mission M101 Collaboration

Gorillaz x G-Shock with Kikuo Ibe

It turns out that the G-Shock appearance in the Gorillaz “Humility” music video was a teaser of things to come, as Casio G-Shock and Gorillaz are now teaming up for a special 35th Anniversary collaboration. Revealed in an animated cartoon, part one shows G-Shock creator Kikuo Ibe enlisting the help of the virtual band for a mission to Galaxy M101 to help him achieve a lifelong dream. (Ibe has often said in interviews that he hopes to create a G-Shock for use in outer space.) The video also features a case full of DW-5600 watches and a GX-56. An illustration of a DW-6900 can also be spotted.

According to G-Shock UK, the collaboration will include a collection of limited edition watches designed specifically with band members 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs in mind. The watches will be available to purchase this winter.
