Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: The supermodel from the music video to "Best Friend". She ''looks'' human [[spoiler:at first]], but her CannibalismSuperpower and ability to unhinge her jaws like a snake are certainly not something a normal human typically has. An animated portion of the video has her morph into a Venus flytrap looking thing, but it's not clear if this is to be taken literally or symbolic.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmicDeath: Implied at the end of "Best Friend"--[[spoiler:the cannibalistic supermodel appears to choke to death after vomiting up the dress of one of her victims]].


Added DiffLines:

* NoodlePeople: The model from "Best Friend" becomes one after she's eaten enough people. [[UncannyValley It understandably horrifies everyone present]].

Foster The People is an American band from UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, formed in 2009. They were originally called Foster & The People; their name was eventually changed to its current state after people [[{{Mondegreen}} misheard it as such]]. Founding member Mark Foster liked it so much (due to its nurturing connotation of "curing the people"), so he just stuck with it.

* [[AbsenteeActor Absentee Musician]]: Pontius ''and'' Cubbie on "Pumped Up Kicks." [[IAmTheBand Foster recorded the whole thing by himself]] with the intention of it being just a demo.
** They also don't appear on "The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones" ([[ACappella for obvious]] [[SelfBackingVocalist reasons]]), [[CreditsGag but the liner notes credit them with drums and bass respectively]]. Even more strangely, Foster is credited with guitar, vibraphone, and celesta, of all things.



* [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Real Life Writes the Song]]: "Pumped Up Kicks". One of Cubbie Fink's cousins survived {{Columbine}}. Foster himself was bullied in high school.

*** The exception is "Pumped Up Kicks," which hits at ''least'' 7 due to its theme of homicide ([[TeenageDeathSongs toward minors, at that]]) and implied mental illness and either [[ParentalNeglect neglectful]] or [[AbusiveParents abusive]] father of the narrator.

* SpitOutAShoe: Happens a few times in "Best Friend" after the woman starts eating the other supermodels. First she spits out some jewelry out into a sink, later she coughs up a high heeled shoe, then finally an ''entire dress.''
