Does anybody know who played the monster in Ringo’s video film for Back Off Boogaloo?

Greetings @Arthur Sultan! I remember reading long ago that the monster was portrayed by Harry Nilsson. I can find online fan discussions mentioning this as a given, but I didn’t see any official confirmation. Because of Ringo’s big day I’ve been immersed in all things Starr today. I ran into this unique blue Apple label used for the UK single. ahdn_ringo_09
