Remember that viral photo of Switchfoot performing in the streets of Tondo, Manila, that caught the attention of residents and netizens?

Turns out that the rumors were true: That Switchfoot "surprise concert" in Tondo is a shoot for the upcoming music video of their latest song "Float." What makes this video such a feel good one is the fact that the way Switchfoot enjoyed their visit, riding the jeepney and even interacting with the residents, is so genuine.
On top of that, their music video also inspires us to bring hope to an impoverished community like Tondo (perhaps volunteer for organizations like Young Focus International, one of those who organized this kind act of humanity?). As Switchfoot's song puts it, "It's how we float, yeah / We ain't never coming down."
We have no doubt that this video can brighten up even the darkest of moods, and don't we all need good vibes?
