British band Foals have collaborated with filmmaker Nabil once again (last time was for the track "Late Night") to produce the video for latest single "Bad Habit". Shot in Nabil's typically epic style, the visuals see lead singer Yannis Philippakis traipsing after a naked freckled girl in the desert.
