Foals - "Late Night" Video

Foals have now released three videos from their new LP, Holy Fire, two of which have received the NSFW tag: first single “Inhaler” and now “Late Night.” That’s probably not a bad strategy; no television outlet (in the States, anyway) is going to give these things any airtime, and I’d bet NSFW vids on average get exponentially more clicks than those of the SFW variety. The “Late Night” clip is pretty damn explicit — as the band plays the lounge of a Lynchian hotel, we get a glimpse of what’s going on in the rooms around them, including a childbirth, a couple enjoying some rough sex, and a solo dude engaged in a bit of autoerotic asphyxiation-turned-unintentional suicide. In this sense, the NSFW tag is well-earned, but the song deserves it, too: It’s one of Holy Fire’s most intimate moments, and the clip presents an honest-feeling visual representation of such intimacy. Check it out.

  1. Hold it. This is actually really good.

  2. I’m surprised their more stringent about male buttocks shots than all that booby grabbing going on. Maybe cause it was a thrusting butt? I doubt there was actual penetration going on there. It’d be interesting if it was a choice as simple as thinking they’d attract more viewers with boobies than dude butts, but it’s just weird to include a censored shot with all that other NSFW stuff going on willy nilly.

  3. Now I’m the last cowboy in this town.

    This is my interpretation of the Foals’ Late Night https://sites.google.com/site/foalslatenight/
