Q. Hello Oracle!! So I was wondering if the crowd during the video of Clocks was edited in, they seem to be displaying no emotions and very little movement, plus I'm sure if someone threw water at me I'd start moving haha. Thank you (are).


The Oracle replies:

No, the crowd was actually in attendance. They were students from the local college and I seem to recall recruiting them was quite last minute. The video's director - Dominic Leung - will have told the audience what to do so maybe a few people found it hard to keep still, I can certainly spot a couple!
