If you've ever wanted a dark retelling of Where The Wild Things Are, we have the music video for you.
On Thursday, Fall Out Boy dropped the first music video from their upcoming seventh album, Mania (out September 15). The vid is for their ominous new song, Young And Menace, and it tackles themes of domestic violence — with a rather odd inspiration.
According to Pete Wentz, this visual project was inspired by the movie Elf — which were having a hard time believing since we can't imagine Will Ferrell playing an abusive unicorn-llama.
Regardless, the video is certainly a bizarre one to watch… and we think that's the whole point. We mean, why else would the group sample Britney Spears' Oops! … I Did It Again in the chorus of such a dark and twisted song if they weren't trying to make something abstract??
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the video for yourself (above)!
The parents behind the disturbing DaddyOFiveYouTube account are apologizing after facing a ton of (warranted) child abuse accusations online!
In case you're unfamiliar, the Maryland couple gained followers after making videos featuring what they call "pranks" on their five children — which usually have one son in particular on the receiving end of verbal and physical abuse from his siblings and parents. Mind you, this was all captured and shared in now-deleted videos!
The latest vid to cause outrage was entitled "Invisible Ink Prank (Epic Freakout)" and showed the parents each screaming profanities at their son for making a mess — something they did in order to set him up. The boy has an extremely hard-to-watch breakdown, during which he becomes red in the face and cries uncontrollably trying to defend himself.
Other videos show the son being wrestled, kicked in the groin, shoved into a bookcase resulting in a bleeding nose, abandoned in a mall, and even scared by a fake burglar in an incident where the father pulled out a real gun.
In much of the content, the child is constantly begging for the filmed pranks to stop and asking to be left alone.
You can see what we're talking about in the video (below):
Just when we thought it was smooth sailing for the company, a United plane had a "terrifying" emergency landing after one of its engines blew out over the ocean on Monday!
According to Jody Genessy, one of the passengers on the Houston, Texas bound flight, the plane "about crashed in an emergency landing" after one of the engines on the Boeing 737-800 overheated not long after they departed the airport in Liberia, Costa Rica.
According to his rep, Elton John contracted a "rare and potentially deadly" bacterial infection after completing the South American leg of his tour. Because of this, the Tiny Dancer singer is forced to cancel all of his April and May performances of his residency The Million Dollar Piano at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
So what does exec producer Selena Gomez think of all this controversy? It's pretty much what she was going for. She told the AP:
"We stayed very true to the book and that's initially what Jay Asher created, was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story, and I think that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, that's going to come no matter what. It's not an easy subject to talk about, but I'm very fortunate with how it's doing. I'm overwhelmed. I'm very proud of it."
Whatever your reaction to the show, it is getting a lot more people to talk about the problem of teen suicide.
