Someone though it would work: convincing Foster the People to dance, pretty heavily, the sort of dance that requires too much concentration to look around or, specifically, to look up and notice the huge slab about to crush them. They thought they could keep “Houdini” off the charts by killing the band. Safe assumption, yes? No. Because Foster the People’s people can rebuild them. They have the technology, and they have a bunch of guys in shadowy bodysuits who can use their lifeless corpses as ragdolls, or turn them into robots, or hang around in the background pulling strings, or whatever else it takes to stage a concert and keep the fans happy. Sorry, folks–with a crack publicity team, not even death can keep you from a hit!
That said, you can sort of tell that “Houdini” was filmed a while ago. Why? No holograms.
