Chaka Khan is back! The Queen of Funk and multiple Grammy winner returns with Like Sugar, a complete funk sugar-rush of a track produced by Switch. And as a result, top commercials director Kim Gehrig has been lured back to music, for this brilliant, gif or loop-inspired video.

Like the great dance videos of the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Gehrig’s video is a simple but deceptively clever idea that’s been expertly executed with the help of the Parisian choreography duo I Could Never Be A Dancer and superstar stylist Vanessa Coyle.

In a contemporary twist, however, it depicts a succession of characters whose dance moves are looped - reflecting the rhythm track but with a visual glitch-in-the-matrix. They’re gradually layered together into an increasingly surreal mix of manic energy, gif-like dance moves and vibrant colours.
