Foster The People Unleash Cops & Robbers Video for 'Don't Stop'
2011 breakout stars Foster The People are back with a wild new music video for "Don't Stop (Color On The Walls)," featuring clueless cops, fake mustaches, lots of cash, and actress Gabourey Sidibe (of "Precious" fame).
Video: Foster The People, "Don't Stop (Color On The Walls)"
In the clip, the indie-pop darlings pose as aggressive yet dim-witted cops and an equally dull yet ambitious robber. The video starts off innocently enough, with a DMV instructor arriving for Sidibe's driving test. However, things quickly spiral out of control, as Sidibe's DMV instructor is exposed as a crook on the run with a fat stack of cash. After alerting the police with such reckless driving, the pigs go on pursuit, resulting in a comical struggle between Sidibe, the thief, and the slapstick cops. Sidibe starts the video as the victim, but by clip's end, she emerges victorious with the car, the cash, and a huge smooch right on the robber's lips. It's safe to say she would've earned her license.
The video is Foster The People's fourth off their debut album "Torches," following "Call It What You Want, "Helena Beat" and their breakthrough hit "Pumped Up Kicks."
