Pete Wentz has more than just llamas to contend with in the music video for Fall Out Boy’s latest single “Hold Me Tight or Don’t.”
Released Wednesday, the video (above) shows the guys from the band—Wentz, Patrick Stump, Joe Trohman, and Andy Hurley—rocking out amid a colorful Día de los Muertos celebration. Most, if not all, of the festive partygoers surrounding them are decked out in zany costumes and wild body paint, with some even dressed as skeletons in formal wear.
They aren’t the only oddly dressed extras, however. Fall Out Boy has once again unleashed the llamas, which have flanked them previously at award shows and appeared in the band’s recent music video for “The Last of the Real Ones.” In that video, the llamas were ill-tempered and wound up whacking Wentz “Goodfellas”-style. In this one, they seem far less prone to violence.
“Hold Me Tight or Don’t” is the latest single from Fall Out Boy’s upcoming album “Mania,” which also birthed “Young and Menace” and “Champion” as well as "The Last of the Real Ones."
“Mania" is due out Jan. 19. Watch “Hold Me Tight or Don’t” (above).
