Holy Flashback Batman! Fall Out Boy and Demi Lovato Filmed a Sequel to ’N Sync’s ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’


Sixteen years after ‘N Sync dolls came to life in the video for “It’s Gonna Be Me,” Fall Out Boy explore what happens to the dollar bin toys in the video for the single “Irresistible” featuring Demi Lovato. ‘N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone make cameos in the clip.

‘What if in the NSYNC video for It’s Gonna Be Me there was an analog to the story?,’ explains the video’s caption. ‘Where in the same store there was a dollar bin full of toys that no one really wanted that would band together like the misfit, offbrand little outsiders they were.  ‘Irresistible is the video for that story, it’s about the toys no one ever wanted come to life.’

Interspersed between the music video’s storyline, Demi rocks out to the track alongside Fall Out Boy members Patrick Stump, 31, Pete Wentz, Andy Hurley,  and Joe Trohman.

Fall Out Boy Debuts New ‘Irresistible’ Anthem: Listen

Fall Out Boy have released “Irresistible,” the fourth song to be released from their forthcoming album American Beauty/American Psycho.

“When I think of ‘Irresistible’ it brings this image to my head, whether it’s fictional or real, of Sid and Nancy in an alley garbage raining down on them in an eternal  spiral of romance and poison,” explained Pete Wentz . “Sometimes it hard not to love what can hurt us the most.”

American Beauty/American Psycho is due Jan. 20It’s the band’s first album since 2013’s Save Rock and Roll.

Check out Urie’s version of the Fall Out Boy story, following shots of Coldcock whiskey, shots of Jameson, shots of Glenlivet scotch, beers throughout the day, beers chugged before the shots, and a vodka Red Bull from Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman:

Not bad, Brendon. The energetic frontman holds his liquor with the best of ’em, even if he couldn’t remember more than three tracks on Save Rock and Roll and messed up the name of FOB’s oft-forgotten debut album Evening Out with Your Girlfriend.

The story begins with Trohman meeting vocalist-guitarist Patrick Stump in 2001 and ends with Fall Out Boy’s 2013 album, Save Rock and Roll. And since the filming of this clip, the band of course announced its new album American Beauty/American Psycho, which drops Jan. 20.

Fall Out Boy Knows ‘The Kids Aren’t Alright’

The band’s latest single, “The Kids Aren’t Alright” is a power ballad that gives you all the feels.

The guys have always had a way with words and this song is no different.

“I’m not passive but aggressive, take note it’s not impressive,” Patrick Stump sings, “Empty your sadness like you’re dumping your purse on the bedroom floor/ We put your curse in reverse.”

“In the end, I’d do it all again / I think you’re my best friend/ Don’t you know the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright,” he sings.
