‘Wilson’ takes us back to the era of TV shopping channels, and Fall Out Boy guys seem to be sales experts…
January 11, 2018
Wow, Fall Out Boy have proved yet again that their music videos are to be counted with. The band has debuted a hilarious, old-style music video for their new single, ‘Wilson (Expensive Mistakes),’ featured on their upcoming album M A N I A.
In this parody on old-school TV shopping channels FOB are selling us everything they possibly could in the funniest way: from Patrick Stump’s working male mouth to shrimps from Pete Wentz to Andy Hurley’s snarebow and stick. Let along the immensely advertised so-called “hand job”, taking fans back to Young Blood Chronicles. And, of course, the video couldn’t do without FOB’s signature sheep from Infinity On High cover.
Watch the clip for ‘Wilson (Expensive Mistakes)’ below:
One more thing. Have you paid attention to that special phone number in the video and wondered what happens if you dial it? It is not just a random number! Give it a ring and get surprised: 1-833-688-2697 (aka 1-833-OUT-BOYS).
