Craig Mabbit playing a macho type cowboy and yoddling the TV host to death… just a tip of the iceberg…
February 15, 2019
Last week’s teasing is over as Escape The Fate share their new, hilarious music video for ‘Do You Love Me?’ If you fell in love with the song, you can find it on the band’s latest record, I Am Human.
The new video creation directed by Robyn August is ridiculing dating shows but in the most entertaining way. The music video starts with a long intro as the show host, Robert, is introducing four hopefuls: a bit full of himself rocker Ritchie Valentine, a less convincing mathematics genius Walter Wayfeather, a “muscle delight” Bob Bailer and, finally, a plain hardworking cowboy Cody Darkwood (Craig Mabbit).
They are all demonstrating their talents (like Mabbit’s yoddling) to win the heart of lovely, yet masculine looking (and sounding) Destiny. Guess who plays the part of Destiny?.. Check out this must-see video right now:
“We had a lot of fun shooting this one and we hope you laugh as much watching it as we did making it”, says the frontman. “oh yeah – and bang your fuckin’ head to the track and grab ‘I Am Human’ while you’re at it.”
Escape The Fate are currently wrapping up their UK and European tour in honor of the 10th anniversary of their album This War Is Ours. The anniversary tour’s last show will be held at London’s Electric Ballroom, Feb 20.
I Am Human was produced by Grammy Award-nominated Howard Benson, who previously worked with My Chemical Romance and Adam Lambert, for one.
