Foster The People’s Kooky Video For “Pumped Up Kicks” Follow Up “Call It What You Want”


Foster The People "Tourches Startime International/Columbia Records

Foster The People are the Cali based Alternative Rockers that seemingly burst on to the scene out of nowhere with their hit song “Pumped Up Kicks.”  Their ability to take  the somewhat haunting and somewhat creepy lyrics  “All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you’d better run, better run, faster than my bullet.” and apply them to and infectious  pop melody that doesn’t get out of your head.  Well the guys have apparently stayed true to that formula to their success with the release of their next single and video “Call It What You Want,” only this time the creepy factor is turned up in an artistically dark but wacky  way.  The video shows everything from goldfish flopping on the ground, drummer Mark Pontius making out with himself in a mirror while he wheres lipstick, bassist Cubbie Fink bathing in what appears to be a tub of bloody water, and the seductive t-shirt wearing video girls being murdered in thin air with bullet wounds of blue paint that splatter on them when gun finger motion is made at them by lead singer Mark Foster. Dark or not the video is truly a work of art through and through.  The one thing that is most clear is that the young trio took the privilege of making an official music video very seriously, even if they are just seriously goofing around.  Watch it.  Odds are, at the very least you’ll be entertained, and it will be something enjoyably kooky you wont forget.  Take a look below and see if you agree. Enjoy!
