For the video to accompany their predictably massive new track ‘Count on Me’, the boys invite users to follow the simple instructions on the landing page to watch their twitter profile get hacked and see their followers soar to tens of thousands in real-time, before launching into the full promo within the twitter UI. It’s a clever execution and words can’t really do it justice, so head over there now and try it yourself.

I must admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of Chase & Status, but as their halcyon-days-of-rave-referencing video for Blind Faith, below, also demonstrates, they definitely have a knack for awesome videos and stadium-sized choons which have helped fuel their stratospheric success in recent years, and which demonstrate a level of creative integrity which the EDM sellout ballbag likes of Calvin Harris and David Guetta have never even bothered with.
