Foals' Stunningly Interactive Video

The first time I watched the Foals' video for "Mountain At My Gates," I couldn't figure out why YouTube kept freezing up when I had previously been watching videos at full speed. I even went so far to close every other program on my computer, which didn't help much. I refreshed it a couple of times, unable to figure out why my computer was freaking out on this relatively simple-looking video. Then I noticed the little circle in the upper lefthand corner and, upon clicking it, started freaking out a little myself.

With the help of this scrolling tool, the video becomes panoramic; the band appears twice on either side of the panorama, with lead singer Yannis Philippakis appearing no less than five times, often walking through objects or other versions of himself. The band performs their high-energy song in a strong wind, and the video is visually strengthened by the use of black and white. At the end the band vanishes, replaced by the storm that has been brewing in the background.

To sum it up; this video may or may not crash your internet browser, but it's so cool, it's worth it.
