The video for Blink 182's new release, "Up All Night," uses a novel format: it is a montage of YouTube fan posted videos which have used the group's music without permission.
The vid, released in conjunction with AT&T, has been dubbed "The Blink-182 Film Festival You Didn't Know You Entered." An opening epigraph explains the concept:
"To launch our first single in eight years, AT&T helped us search YouTube for every instance of fans using our music. The following is made out of clips from all those videos. Thanks for being a fan."
"Up All Night" is the lead single from the group's forthcoming album, Neighborhoods. The LP is slated for a September 27 release.
In the meantime, the band is scheduled to headline the late summer/early fall Honda Civic tour with My Chemical Romance.
