Pharrell partners up with Takashi Murakami on the new video for “It Girl,” the latest single from his sophomore LP G I R L. The famous Japanese pop artist produced the visual, which is an anime-inspired adventure – complete with overly pixelated imagery, neon-colored pop-up text, cartoon illustrations and classic video game scenes.

The Fantasista Utamaro-directed video finds Pharrell on a psychedelic joyride, as he follows a group of teenage Japanese anime schoolgirls to the beach. Towards the end, they all take off on – get this – a dolphin spaceship. It’s a little pervy, totally nostalgic (catch the Pokemon references!), and very cool!
