The Knocks are parodying some cult classics in their new video for "Ride or Die," featuring Foster the People.
While the collaboration arrived back in March, the video is out Monday and it sees the duo linking up with Foster the People frontman Mark Foster to go back in time with imagery nodding to old favorite films such as White Men Can’t Jump, Pulp Fiction, Rocky and Men in Black.
"Writing the song, we wanted to create a warm nostalgic sound that centered around the idea of friendship and celebration," The Knocks said of the collaboration. "We always knew that Mark was perfect for the song, so when we linked up in the studio, we all immediately knew there was something special there."
For his part, Foster said of the video: "Our friend Kenny Laubbacher introduced us last year and everything came full circle with Kenny coming up with this music video concept that paid homage to famous duos from the past. I got to play the weird third wheel guy in each sequence, so naturally I said yes."
