Fall Out Boy Is Not Monkeying Around When It Comes To Product Placement

Mar 26th, 2007 // 8 Comments

Perhaps more notable than the number of chimpanzee co-stars in Fall Out Boy’s video for “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” is the high product-placement quotient throughout the whole thing–we didn’t do an exact count, but it seems like Nokia probably got as much screen time as the band’s guitarist. We guess that all those animal-wranglers must have caused the clip’s production budget to go sky-high, thus making it ripe for subsidization, but are the makers of TAG Body Spray really trying to reel in the emo-kid crowd with a promise that even chimps will kiss your butt after you use it?

    Budgets have fallen so severely that in 2007 many videos simply wouldn’t happen without the product placement money. Of course, they probably don’t tell the band they have to do this kind of stuff until the last possible minute.

    was kim kardashian also a product placement (that was her right?)
    and is pete going to be the new vanilla ice? that out of control set destruction just screams “surreal life”.

    Ok, correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t a monkey stealing the dark haired hot chick from Casino Royale, from Pete Wentz? Seriously. Did that just happen.

    Tag was a sponsor of this video so it could be hosted for “Free downloads” over this past weekend. The video was supposed to be up on F.O.B.’s official website Friday morning but it didnt appear there until sometime Saturday. In a surprising twist, it seems no one bitched about it’s tardiness. Sometimes the internet surprises me!
