MEGAFORCE & 7 Present... Is Tropical - "The Greeks."
"Filmed in a sleepy, French suburb in God-knows-where, and starring a group of the coolest kids in the cul-de-sac, "The Greeks"' video reflects the song - It's about everything, and kinda nothing, and being young, or something...
We wanted to work together [with MEGAFORCE] to create something both visually appealing and aesthetically relevant to the band. We like kids, we like gangs, we really like daydreaming and imagination; The video straddles the line between nostalgia and the visual death-porn of our generation - the action film... This is a straight-up kid brawl the way it played out in your head when you were stealing your mum's mascara to be like Arnie in Predator. It isn't a shocking rebuke to our drama queen, populist news culture either - Just naive, blissful "shoot-yr-mate until he's definitely dead war-games" - The way you wish it still could be."
