Premiere: Watch Sam Rockwell Dance Like No One's Watching In Flight Facilities' New Video

This guy has some serious moves.

Posted on

This is Flight Facilities, an aeronautics-obsessed Australian production duo known for suave but funky electronic pop (see "Crave You" and "Stand Still") that shifts gears between subtle and soaring.

And this is Sam Rockwell, a respected actor known for daring roles in such films as Moon, Seven Psycopaths, and Choke.


Rockwell is also known to be a bit of a cut-up on the dancefloor, with impressive moves you may remember from his multiple appearances on The Tonight Show.

And in Flight Facilities' new video for "Down To Earth," taken from their fall 2014 album of the same name, Rockwell's fancy footwork takes center stage.

Shot by director Rhett Wade Ferrell, who helmed previous FF clips for "Crave You" and "Sunshine," and choreographed by legendary choreographer Vincent Paterson (Michael Jackson, Madonna), "Down To Earth" begins with Rockwell alone in an eerie diner.

He mops the floors...

Mans the ovens...

And generally acts like he owns the place.

I'm the kinda guy that likes to shake my tail feather, and so it was a great opportunity to get some new moves.

Ferrell said he, Rockwell, and Paterson watched old references of Jackson and Fred Astaire, trying to capture the feeling of "dancing when no one is looking."

It also reminds us of Spike Jonze's classic 2001 video for Fat Boy Slim's "Weapon of Choice," starring Christopher Walken.

Watch the full video for "Down To Earth" premiering below on BuzzFeed Music. The album is available now.
