The Strokes Release 'Threat Of Joy' Video

The Strokes

(Radio.com) Things get downright surreal in The Strokes' new music video for "Threat Of Joy" off their new EP Future, Present, Past. It marks the first time in five years the entire band has appeared in a music video together.

From the smiles that arise on their faces throughout the video, it seems they're having a grand time. Directed by Warren Fu, the video takes place largely on a movie soundstage where another music video is being shot. But something goes terribly awry when important footage goes missing and several characters step in to recover it. There's a mysterious agent, a group of greedy ne'er do wells in pig masks, a female spy and an intoxicating but wily seductress.

In the meantime, the studio substitutes the music video viewers would have seen with a performance by The Strokes. The band plays their song in back of the main soundstage while all around them things continue to unwind in mysterious and strange ways.

At times The Strokes are left alone to play their music but at other times they find themselves enmeshed in the drama around them. It's a colorful tale that harkens back to 1960s and 1970s film. Watch it here.
