Foals' Olympic Airways by Dave Ma - now signed to Pulse Films

David Knight - 17th Sept 2008

The vid for Olympic Airways sees Foals performing in a secluded forest with a gang of friends before getting painted up and smashing everything in sight. Comparisons with MGMT's Time To Pretend are probably inevitable, but this certainly has less video static. In fact, it looks great - shot on an increasingly ubiquitous Red by the justifiably popular Ross McLennan - and actually shot in Great Britain this summer when it wasn't raining. "The idea was to take a bunch of friends out to the middle of nowhere," explains Dave. "It ended up being a perfect day - probably the best one all summer. My only regret was that the balloons didn't stray into the nearby flight path. It would have been cool to take down a plane for the final shot of the vid." And you just can't fake that kind of thing properly can you
