SYDNEY, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- "Cause An Effect," the music video Australian actor Heath Ledger directed for his friend, rapper No Fixed Abode, is on the Internet.

Ledger died in early 2008 of an accidental prescription drug overdose. He won a posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker in "The Dark Knight" this year.

"The idea was to keep it very artistic, which is what we did," the Australian hip-hop artist, who also goes by the nickname N'fa, told TVGuide.com about collaborating with Ledger on the clip. "Heath directed really well ... and I know that Heath was happy with the work."

The performer told the magazine's Web site Ledger had worked on what would be his last video in N'fa's garage in Sydney a few months before his death at the age of 28.

"Every day I count my blessings that I got to have him direct this piece of art. It was a song I was proud to have written, but I never expected to have such an immense video made for it," N'fa told TVGuide.com. "I'd known Heath since we were very young, and he was always a creative kind of guy and, in many ways, ahead of the curve. When he had the idea about doing this video, I had no question about it."

A music video Ledger had directed for Modest Mouse debuted online about two months ago.
