Our Canadian five-some gets discovered at the dance and signs with Atlantic Records. They start playing bigger shows (like the bowling alley) and recording in nicer studios. They record a 7" that starts climbing the charts. But then breakup rumors start appearing (in Pierre going solo?) and Sebastien and David start making tabloids (Sebastien arrested again! David joins a cult!). Pierre spots a red M&M in his bowl of green M&Ms and throws a fit, Sebastien trashes the dressing room, and David runs off with a Japanese bohemian (a nod to The Beatles and Yoko Ono?). Jeff Smashes a guitar and Chuck gets butt-ass drunk. Our band has broken up.
Simple Plan said, "This video is a love letter to one of our favorite movies of all time, 'That Thing You Do.' It's about the exhilarating power that 3 chords, a drum beat and a catchy melody can have on the lives of the people who create it." The video is super fun and matches the feel of the song perfectly. Simple Plan likes to take chances, and when you've been a band for fourteen years, why not do something super fun?
