Foals' Yannis Philippakis becomes engaged in an elemental struggle with his alter ego - played by a lookalike actor, Vincent Heneine - in Quentin Deronzier's epic video for The Runner.

Deronzier taps into primal instinct and myth, and the themes of numerous movies, as Yannis wanders through extraordinary landscapes, encountering this individual who looks like him, is dressed like him, but is not quite him. He wants to get away from him, and is forced to fight him. But can he accept him?
