Franz Ferdinand

Do You Want To

Epic Records
Diane Martel

The Franz Ferdinand / hip-hop connection, while not immediately obvious, can't be denied. Kanye West refered to their music as 'white crunk' and admittingly used the Scottish band as inspiration for the album, Late Registration. Even Snoop Dogg made it clear that he intends to collaborate with them. Thus it's no suprise that Franz chose hip-hop director Diane Martel for this amusingly obnoxious video of Franz trashing a pretentious art opening. The song's lyrics recant meaningless banter that was once shouted into frontman Alex Kapranos' ear at such an event.
