Fall Out Boy Spoof Diva Lifestyle in ‘Uma Thurman’ Videoby Maggie Malach | PopCrush
If the “Uma Thurman” video is any indication, working for Fall Out Boy is something along the lines of The Devil Wears Prada. The band’s latest video pokes fun at their rock star lifestyle — at the expense of one overworked personal assistant.
So what exactly does FOB’s assistant do? The tasks range anywhere from walking a pet zebra (as one does) to singing karaoke with Patrick Stump (which we would pay to do) to flying around in an anti-gravity chamber with Pete Wentz. You know, normal clerical duties.
One item on the to-do list that’s especially relevant is when the assistant climbs into a tank (with “Uma” painted on it) and drives over a truck with the words “Article 1, Section 36.03″ written on the side. As Billboard reports, it’s a nod to Alabama’s ban on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. According to the Montgomery Advertiser, the motion was passed in February, making Fall Out Boy’s statement extremely topical.
On a lighter note, mad props go to Fall Out Boy for recruiting top-notch cameos from stars such as Big Sean, Panic! at the Disco‘s Brendon Urie and Action Bronson. Most importantly, the video gives us a special look at the private lives of Fall Out Boy. We gained so much insight, including that Patrick has a love of fluffy chicks and Joe is a bit of a diva. (We kid, we kid.)
