New Video: A Day To Remember, '2nd Sucks'.
Posted 31 minutes ago by Nicole James in Celebrity, Music, Videos
Lana Del Rey was totally right -- dudes are unreasonably obsessed with video games. A Day To Remember's latest video "2nd Sucks" is yet another case in point as the former MTV PUSH artists make every dudes' dreams come true: they bring the popular '90s video game "Mortal Kombat" to life. There's also some sick performance footage in there, so the video's about five minutes of pure testosterone. Yay, guy things!
Watch A Day To Remember's "2nd Sucks" video after the jump.
"2nd Sucks" opens with a group of young boys trying to find a dude named Snake. They wind up at a back alley warehouse where a familiar face (you definitely didn't see coming) helps the kids out -- *NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick. (We KNOW. We would have loved to been muted on that conference call.) Chris lets the kids in the warehouse where they find Snake and also an entire video game arena with tons of graffiti on the walls (so it must be the real deal). The kids end up in front of a lone arcade game in the corner that somehow transports them to A Day To Remember show. Chugging guitars and intense, in-your-face vocals narrate the computerized "Mortal Kombat" action while a mosh pit takes place in real time. Hope you brought your Axe body spray.
A Day To Remember is currently on tour in Asia and the U.S. through the spring. "2nd Sucks" is the band's latest single from their 2010 album, What Separates Me From You.

Stop the presses everyone! Chris actually left his "cave" and even did a radio interview to boot! Yesterday, Chris and one of his artists, Khamelien, were on "A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan" a local show in Orlando. Thanks to Stephanie who posted the link Facebook to the live Ustream, we were all able to bask in the lovable voice that is Chris Kirkpatrick. He regaled us with stories about life with *NSYNC, some stories that went WAY before the group even started, and even about friendships with one of the members of the group. That's all the info I'll give since some haven't heard the entire interview.
Someone was kind enough to post photos of Chris through out the interview and they are floating about on Twitter. I'll go through and pick those up and Robin will have those up soon.
You can pick up a copy of the interview for yourself on iTunes. I had a hard time getting it to download at first, so try subscribing to the podcasts and then download it. Or you can go to their website and do a direct download. Chris's episode is #148 on both the site and iTunes. Enjoy!
