Hollywood promises glory and fame units and the thousands ,who aimlessly pester labels and studios, he predicts a failure and eventually forgotten. Mark, despite his young age, has experienced the hard way, both sides of the coin : a teenager he came to the City of Angels, to become a star, but a few years later found themselves cut off from life and friends ,playing the dull parties just to earn money for drugs. Remembering that time, Mark admits that he could not understand what was going on : he had talent, he knew the actors and musicians, he played him the songs, and they listened to them with pleasure. But something still did not work ; and only in 2010, shortly after the creation of the group ,He wrote the song `Pumped Up Kicks`. As if by magic, the band members went to sleep a dream of little-known Californian musicians, and woke up the stars of the Internet.

Soon the group was invited to the festival `South by Southwest`,Foster and he seriously began to worry about their ability to withstand the pressure of the mailbox of letters from fans around the world. Kredel Brent (Brent Kredel), group manager of the label `Monotone`, later remembered that time as follows: ` Mark turned from a guy who could not find a person who is interested in his work, in fact, who knows teperne ,what to do with hundreds of letters in the mail yaschike`.
