I Can Put Back All The Pieces, They Just Might Not Fit The Same.
Bowling For Soup are the kings of comedy-punk. They've appeared (or just sang) in movies, including but not limited to "Jimmy Neutron", "Freaky Friday", "Cursed", etc. Most of those songs have just been fun, and not serious (not sure about the song in "Cursed" however). But, when a band like this comes out with a serious song, they need a serious video to go along with it. So who do you hire to star in it? Lee Majors. Yep. According to some reports, this is the highest costing music video of all time (thanks for being greedy Lee.) The whole video deals with a son drifting away from his father (Jared plays the son, with random people playing him at various stages in life, Lee Majors as the father throught), and the son trying to reconnect, but the father's heart has harderned. It's actually an all too true story. The whole video deals with this, with some momentary rocking out by the whole band. The video is well done. Definintaly different for this band. Lee does a good job of acting, but damn, did he cost a lot. My only worry (which seems to be coming a reality) is that this won't get any airplay and the video will go to waste. Hopefully FUSE or VH1 or MTV will grab a hold of it and eat it up: it's just waiting for it.
Such a Great Video
This song was beautiful on its own, but now that they've added this amazing and heartfelt video to it, Bowling for Soup has created my favorite music video of all times. Jaret does an amazing acting job in the video, and to me it looks like something that could have been straight out of a movie. As they said themselves... Bowling for Soup may not take themselves seriously but they're a serious band, and I hope that their label continues to let them release their serious songs as singles along with their usually upbeat, fun, anthems.
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
Bowling For Soup is well known for making everything hilarious, so this departure from their normal routine is quite hard for most fans to wrap their minds around. This song is beautiful and speaks to all people. The video tells the story of one way the song can be interpreted, but it's not necessarily about a father and son. Watch it, and see what it means to you.
