Robbie Williams and Dizzee Rascal shut down a street in London on Tuesday (30Apr13) to film a bizarre new promo. The rapper enlisted Take That star Williams to appear on his new single Goin' Crazy, and the pair teamed up to film an accompanying video, which was based on cult British 'mod' movie Quadrophenia. The pair rode on motorised disability vehicles decorated with multiple wing mirrors to look like Vespa scooters, which were popular with young men in 1960s Britain. They also employed lookalikes of stars including Grace Jones, Elvis Presley and John Lennon to join in, and Angels hitmaker Williams reveals he jumped at the chance to collaborate with Dizzee Rascal. He tells Britain's The Sun, "I have never been so urban. When I heard Dizzee wanted me, I was like, 'F**k yes!' The song instantly sounded like a smash. I love his vibe, his energy and he is a real talent. He seems to be the voice of this generation, so it was a no-brainer."
