New Hope Club have just revealed the video for their own take on Mud’s Tiger Feet, which features on the latest Aardman and STUDIOCANAL film, EARLY MAN. The video sees the band working in an American-style diner, who then transform into a rock’n’roll band, donning leather jackets and slicked-back hair. They perform Tiger Feet to punters, who include German social media sensations Lisa and Lena. The identical twins have a whopping 26 million followers on lip-sync app Musical.ly, which is where the girls found fame. The Tiger Feet video is already trending on Twitter in the UK, Australia, India, Japan, the Philippines, France, Spain and more. It has also surpassed 148k views on YouTube since going live yesterday morning. Watch the video below.
Tiger Feet is the second track to be featured on the EARLY MAN Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album, alongside Good Day. The video for Good Day, can be seen here.
