Floating Action premieres “Matador” video

Last month, we joined Floating Action on the set of its latest video, an ‘80s-themed aerobics spoof for “Matador,” a bouncy rock anthem from its latest album, Fake Blood.

As one might expect, the video is heavy on the silly, from costumes and dance moves to more subtle elements we’ll leave for the viewer. A handful of local dancers and actual aerobics instructors choreographed the song in advance, and after some brief practice, Floating Action managed to sweat its way through the two-minute routine a dozen or so times. The shoot ended with everyone winded, soaked and red in the face. But who ever said being a rock star was easy?

Now, after nearly two months, “Matador” has finally been released. Check out the video, along with some behind-the-scenes footage, below:
