Remember N*Sync’s ‘No Strings Attached’ dancing puppets video? Well, in Foster the People’s new video for “Houdini” the indie rockers get similar a similar boy band puppet treatment. As more people (studios, fans, managers) come into play controlling the band’s careers, the group becomes increasingly robotic, puppet-like performers with white uniform outfits. You can check out the video for “Houdini” below.
Fortunately, Foster the People isn’t a boy band in real life and their live show has plenty of fun (unforced) energy. So while it is a cool video to watch, we’re glad this is not how they really are at live shows…well, maybe…we wouldn’t mind seeing a few of those dance moves busted out live.
What do you think of Foster the People’s new video?
