If you're amused by slightly embarrassing public spectacles, then Bear Mountain's new video for their version of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" should be right up your alley.
This cover adds a little extra upbeat energy to Tears for Fears' classic tune, and the video captures the spirit of the music by showing three suited men — one of whom is wearing a large geometric mask — performing a dance routine outside of the downtown branch of the Vancouver Public Library. Filmed in a single extended take, the members of Bear Mountain can be seen in the small crowd gathered outside of the building. Eventually, the onlookers jump up and get in on the flash mob-style routine.
The clip is being released through the Scion Sessions. Scroll past Bear Mountain's tour schedule to watch it.
