99ROCK MUSIC NEWS: Foster The People Release Behind the Scenes Look At “Houdini” Video
In one of Foster The People’s most ambitious videos to date, the band is killed during the making of their “Houdini” music video. But rather than cancel the shoot and subsequent liver performance, the video’s Japanese financier saves the day.
The large mobster-looking man calls in a team of engineers to replace the group’s internal organs with animatronics. Then, with the help of a troupe of puppeteers, the band is brought to life and the studio audience is fooled. All in a day’s work.
Today, Vevo released an entertaining and exclusive behind-the-scenes short about the making of the “Houdini” video. Watch the band learn some b-boy dance moves. Cubby Fink, the band’s bass player mused, “It’s kinda weird… everything we do, we’ve got a puppeteer behind us.”
Behind the Scenes.
Watch the completed video.
The band is currently playing select U.S. dates followed by a handful of European summer festivals. Foster The People’s “Houdini” is available everywhere.
