In collaboration with Rose McGowan, Yoko Ono has released the new Miike Snow remix of her 1973 song 'Catman.' Aside from its avant-garde style, the most notably unique aspect of the video is McGowan's choice as a director to use older dancers in Ono's video. McGowan said "Casting women dancers over 60, including one with cancer, was my way of showing that vitality doesn't die with age." McGowan's choice was to reflect Ono's unwavering support of modern dance and of women.

The older women in the video dance just as lively and beautifully as the younger woman who plays the feline-woman. The video captures the fun they're having while performing when it catches them smiling as they prance around the dance studio. Ono's video for Catman succeeds in its goal of capturing the "joys of movement."
