Nerd Watch: This Music Video Inserts Its French Indie Rockers Into Every Awesome Movie from the '80s

Feb 10, 2012

The somewhat cheesy effects aside, we're loving the concept behind this music video for the song "Pursuit" by the French band Stuck in the Sound. The idea of it revolves around the band inserting themselves into a ton of famous movies (most of which come from the 1980s), and if you grew up during that time then chances are every movie you obsessed over as a kid makes an appearance here. We're talking films like Back to the Future, Robocop, Full Metal Jacket, Jaws, Scarface, Totat Recall, ET, Gremlins, Rambo, Risky Business, The Breakfast Club, Crocodile Dundee and so many more.

The track can be found on the French rockers' latest album, "Pursuit," which hit stores at the end of January. It's their third album, and one they hope will help them go global. They already sing in English, and this music video -- featuring a slew of iconic American movies -- should snag the attention of plenty of geeks here in the United States, which ain't a bad thing (and was probably their intention all along).

Check it out below, and thanks to Dan Trachtenberg's One Cool Thing a Day blog for pointing us in its direction.
