New video to Won't Be Broke Forever Baby features a clone, a magic door and some stolen wonga

The Welsh Wizard Akira The Don has released a track called 'We Won't Be Broke Forever Baby', with accompanying video, in collaboration with Gruff Rhys.

This is part three in a series of videos taken from his recent album The Life Equation which features AtD spending the money he stole in part two winning back the girl in part one.

The promo is directed by Aaron Shrimpton (Scroobius Pip, B Dolan) and co stars Envy, Nina Kate, Eddie Argos (Art brut) and Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals, Neon Neon).

Akira The Don is furnishing us with a mix for our series soon. He has uncovered perhaps the oddest conspiracy theory that we've ever heard about, which is namely that the Olympics 2012 is being held as part of an alien invasion of Earth. Or something.

As he told us this morning: "Staged Operaton Bluebeam Alien Invasion At Zion 2012 Olympic Games Mixtape is coming along nicely, should be done in the next few days, and will be the ultimate historical artefact on the subject. Just needs a snappy google friendly title..."

Right on.
