The artistic video for "Sexy Boy" features black-and-white footage of the band on the street together with a stuffed monkey in a T-shirt. This is cut in with minimalist animations of the monkey growing to Godzilla-size and towering over the city, while people point and comment worshipfully. View it here
While the name "Air" might seem to allude to the band's being "light as air," it is actually an acronym which stands for the French words "Amour, Imagination, Rêve" that translates to "love, imagination, dream."
While the original Moon Safari album was released in 1998, Virgin Records has since re-released it to mark the album's tenth anniversary. Released in 2008, this special edition came with a booklet, DVD, and second CD with live and remix performances.
Along with albums and concerts, Air also has a film career. Amongst other film credits, they composed the score to 1999's The Virgin Suicides, which was the first film project of director Sofia Coppola (yes, of those Coppolas!).
