Foster the People - Houdini


Probably my favorite song from Torches, Foster the People have released a super creative video for the track "Houdini".  Did you ever wonder what would happen if one of the most popular bands got killed in a horrible video shoot accident?  Well if you did, this could be a possible outcome.  Mark and the boys are unceremoniously crushed under a lighting rig and in a very profitable move, the production crew opts for a little help in the form of Kuroko/Bunraku-style acts of puppetry, which is a huge form of entertainment in Japan and has been for many, many years.

I like the video because like the other Foster the People videos, it doesn't take itself seriously at all and has a good time making fun of itself.  There's also choreography from the guys which was exciting as well.  Watch the video and leave me a comment as far as what you thought of it.
