"Houdini" is the sixth single taken from the début album of American indie pop band Foster the People (read this). Written by frontman Mark Foster, the song is set to be released on May 15, 2012. The video follows a story of Foster the People getting crushed by a lighting rig during rehearsal before a concert held on the next day. Their manager finds out, and uses his assistants to move their limbs. The manager hires some scientists, who turn the band into robots. The video, directed by Daniel Scheinert & Daniel Kwan (aka Daniels), ends with the band in white clothes, with some dancers, dressed in black, dancing behind them, while the instruments play themselves.
