It’s not everyday you see Fall Out Boy atop these pages, but their video for “Uma Thurman” today is definitely a great watch for this fun Friday.
That’s because the concept is fun as hell. They gave a fan the chance to be their assistant for 24 hours and, well, they went crazy with it. Crazy meaning paintball, off-roading, walking a zebra, and even bringing over chicks to Patrick Stump (literally though). Amidst the full “day” of events, the assistant is of course backstage at a Fall Out Boy show and runs into Big Sean and Action Bronson. Hah! There’s your hip hop crossover on an otherwise fun video… with a great message at the end (see: below.)
when people ask us what life is on the road or backstage- i always think of how they picture it in their head. that was the intent of the uma video to deliver fly on the wall look into our life backstage and at home only on steroids. not only did we want to show what it was like, we wanted to bring someone into our world so they could experience it too.
fall out boy has always been based on inclusion. if you dont fit in anywhere else you can fit in here.
Ps – we hope you can support the very special message at the end of the video.
Said message at the end of the video is summed up in this tweet. Props to Fall Out Boy for including this in the vein of their fun video — their support for same sex marriage.
