Green Day were pretty much given the cold shoulder by a bunch of bored-looking models in their “Oh Love” video, but the Bay Area band gets more attention than they can handle from Kevin Hart, host of the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, in this newest promo. Hart storms into the band’s rehearsal, carrying a tuba and demanding that they be renamed Black Day. (Alternate band name: “Half Past Midnight,” to make things a “little darker”.)
Green Day is just one of the many acts slated to take the stage at the 2012 MTV VMAs, filmed live from Los Angeles on Thursday September 6. If the show is half as entertaining as these promos, we’re in for a good night.
