Music video

The music video to "Goodbye Mr A" is reminiscent of superhero comics and popular culture, such as the 1960s Batman television series. In the video, The Hoosiers kidnap Mr. A, a comic-book character and the world's greatest superhero. They then take his place fighting crime as incompetent anti-heroes. Despite being fired into space at the end, Mr. A. survives and opens his eyes; this is a reference to the film Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
"Goodbye Mr A" is included in the soundtrack for the football video game FIFA 08, and the game can also be seen in the "Goodbye Mr A" music video. Lead singer Irwin Sparkes, who is from Reading, Berkshire, is playing as Reading F.C. against Manchester United. The song also appears in a trailer for the American film Juno.
