Luke Tierney - 3rd June 2014

Foster The People have enlisted the help of BREWER to direct the video for Best Friend, and to tackle the image-obsessed fashion industry.

And Alex Brewer and Ben Brewer take FTP's lyrics "when your best friend's strung out" quite literally.

The theme is beauty-envy, and where it all ends up, as an ambitious vixen digests her fellow models, and takes on their features in the eternal search for perfection. The result? Being stretched in places that only usually occur in Photoshop.

It makes for an awesome sight on the catwalk, but just on those occasions when magazines take the retouching too far, it does not end well...
