Message From Mark Hoppus Regarding New Academy Is Video

Posted by - 07:16 AM on 06/28/07
Mark Hoppus posted the following message regarding The Academy Is' new video.
Message From Mark HoppusSo the other day I am walking to our dressing room in Salt Lake City and Jack, this guy who tours and videos for "The Academy May Very Well Be," walks up to me, shoves a piece of paper in my face, and asks me to sign. Being the nice, kind-to-other-people kind of guy that I am, I oblige his request and sign away. Come to find out later, it was actually a release form for their new video for the hit, new single "Neighbors" (which is an unoriginal title; it is actually the name of a TV show in Australia, where Michael is from). And lo and behold, the very next day, this video hits the information superhighway, and has my image all over it. I mean, basically, the video is all about me. Me on tour, me hanging out with my friends, me eating dinner at catering, walking onstage, rocking the house, etc. These dudes are totally using me to boost the fame of their own band. But I guess Rock Sound magazine calling their album "one of the most honest rock records of the past" whatever, it just isn't enough. I guess sometimes you have to bring out the big guns. Just watch this thing. It really is shameless.

P.S. Pay very close attention to the :54 time marker.

C'mon, guys. If you can't tell that that's completely tongue-in-cheek, you might wanna read that again.

Some people around these parts are very silly indeed.

Kids, the joke is that Mark is in the video for roughly 0.5 of a second
