The Australian synthpop band Clubfeet has worked with production company Oh Yeah Wow to put together a cool video for their new single, "Everything You Wanted." Lead singer Yves Robert walks down an empty road towards frozen images of himself; he hits the stills exactly, merging through the images into the rest of the song. Some instances of the effect are a little silly, like the few times Roberts rolls on the ground. The best parts come when Roberts simply walks towards his own striding image. You wonder, how will he get to that moment? And when he reaches it, there's a palpable pop.
