Rael rea­son for video mes­sage

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

A VIDEO pro­mot­ing Hu­manz, the new al­bum by Go­ril­laz, the vir­tual band co-founded by Blur front­man Damon Al­barn, left some won­der­ing. Could the ap­pear­ance of a char­ac­ter in a T-shirt with the slo­gan “It’s not Rael” be a jibe at the Jewish state?

Af­ter all, seven years ago Go­ril­laz dropped a planned gig in Is­rael late in the day but went on to play in Syria.

But sus­pi­cious minds can re­lax. A spokesman for the ban ex­plained that the ref­er­ence, in the video to the track Saturnz Bar, was to Raelism, the move­ment which be­lieves hu­man be­ings were cre­ated by aliens called Elo­him.
