Higgs directed the bizarre video, which features a lip-synching chimpanzee puppet during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown. He explained
it focuses on a primate caught up in an existential dilemma as he compares his relative insignificance to the universe.
"I kind of wanted it to be like Carl Sagan-like, Cosmos
, '70s sort of slightly crappy space stuff," Higgs said. "And the monkey just seemed to fit in in sort of a 2001: A Space Odyssey
kind of way. There's some kind of deep connection between the planets and monkeys! So it was really as simple as that."
