    Very Donnie Darko indeed. I was not expecting those guys on bikes to pop out from behind her. Good editing or good riding? i think riding

    Too bad it`s been done before. Not only is their sound a rip-off so is their video. Don`t believe me? You Tube, Goldfrapp, Number 1. I hate no talent losers that have to steal other bands ideas.

    Notice how she herself doesn`t do any tricks.

    I need my musical artists to be able to perform kick*ss bike tricks, otherwise I don`t listen to them.

    Anyone can sing, show me someone who can sing while juggling chainsaws or people.

    I think the most impressive thing about that is that it was done all in one continuous shot, probably after hours of rehearsal.

    Devi- I believed you before I looked up that video, as there is nothing new about borrowing ideas from other bands and videos. But after watching that video I have decided that you are a complete idiot, albeit a lucky one at that. That video is completely different in every way shape and form. The sound is different, the style is different, and the feel is different.

    I have to agree with phroedoux, Devi3000 is out of her mind. I love Golgfrapp, but except for the animal heads everything else is different. This is a great little video.

    I recently saw this video because someone suggested that it was very similar to the new Feist video for 1234 which uses the same technique or having everyone hide behind the singer and then editing them all out. It`s a cool video.

    Angryape.com says:

    Filmed in a single take, the film sees Natasha Khan riding a bike along a long straight road, where she is joined by fellow bikers (wearing animal heads a la Animal Collective or even Donnie Darko) who embark on a synchronised hand claps and wheelies.

    That`s pretty good considering it was a single take!

    Hmn I find this video strange but mainly because she looks like she is in front of a greenscreen. Look at the lighting on her compared to everything else. Its chopped very well with the smoke. Hmn interesting.

    Anyway this was really fun to watch, I usually change the channel/end the video during a music video but I watched this the whole way through. Kudos.

    And I found it unerringly straight (i mean, ungay).
    Very manly. And womanly. Together. Like, doing it.

    Wow. :-/ Trick-riding furries, balloon-loosing robed figures, a car-wreck that`s being entirely ignored and sudden slo-motion while the song stays at the same pace. That`s strangely alluring.

    I think Devi missed the point of the minimalist approach. Also, as far as I can tell the only thing similar between the two videos is that they are both video which contain songs and people.

    Hey, I don`t think it was a continuous take. There was one mistake that I saw where the camera goes from Natasha Khan to the two ghosts holding balloons then focuses back on Natasha. She`s on a different street! There was no light post and no white triangle on the road!

    But I liked the video anyways.

    You really think this is a single take?

    Check behind the singing girl before the freaky people let go of the balloons, Its one long road. Then when it goes back to the girl there is a intersection behind her. Also when she takes off from that shot, you can see behind the bike. So those people are not always riding behind her. It was done well, but not a single shot.
