Okay, I just finished digesting pop rock band, Foster the People‘s video “Helena Beat” and I must say, the post apocalyptic setting and video wins the award for the most gratuitous use of children engaging in destructive and violent activities in a video award…if there was such a thing! Oh my!
I mean when folks gave Michael Jackson a lot of grief for the last destructive minutes of his 1991 Black or White video …boy have we come a long way.
FTP’s video is creative and a conversation piece and it reminds me of a cross between The Book of Eli meets William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies“. Check it out and tell me what you think.
