Francis and the Lights ft. Bon Iver and Kanye West 'Friends' by Jake Schreier

Francis and the Lights ft. Bon Iver and Kanye West 'Friends' by Jake Schreier

Jake Schreier, perhaps best known for his feature films Robot & Frank and Paper Towns recruits Kanye West and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver to assist Francis and the Lights in this super-minimal one-take video.

A camera creeps around a huge black and white expanse of a set as Kanye, Francis and Justin each take turns with surreal movements, sparse lip sync and a very small amount of choreography. It's minimal to the Nth degree and manages to look nonchalantly cool in the process.
