Fall Out Boy and Demi Lovato Spoof 'NSYNC's 'It's Gonna Be Me' in New 'Irresistible' Video (And Joey Fatone Makes a Cameo!)
The rockers channel the boy band, turning into toys in their latest clip
Guess what? Fall Out Boy has a new music video – and the rockers pay homage to another band of boys.
In their new video for “Irresistible,” their latest single with Demi Lovato, FOB and the “Confident” singer channel ‘NSYNC’s iconic “It’s Gonna Be Me” clip, with the band turning into live-action playthings at a toy store. Adding to the nostalgia factor: a cameo from none other than ‘NSYNC alum Joey Fatone.
The video’s theme is just another pop culture reference from the punk-pop vets’ latest album, American Beauty/American Psycho: Lead single “Centuries” samples Suzanne Vega’s famed “Tom’s Diner,” “Uma Thurman” is a nod to the actress and samples The Munsters theme, and the title track samples Motley Crüe’s “Too Fast for Love.”
For old time’s sake, here’s ‘NSYNC’s original 2000 masterpiece:
