Blink 182 – ‘Up All Night’ + ‘fan-made’ video

Pop punk superstars Blink 182 have just released what is being described as a “fan-made” video for their new single “Up All Night.”

The band compiled the footage from unauthorized clips uploaded to YouTube to create the video, stating “To launch our first single in eight years, AT&T helped us search YouTube for every instance of fans using our music without our permission. And then we rewarded them for it. This film is made out of clips from all those videos. Thanks for being a fan.”

I initially thought the video would of consisted of crappy live gig clips, recorded on mobile phones etc; however what Blink 182 have done is search YouTube for any clip that uses Blink 182 as a backing track and then sequence their new single over the footage

Any views? Have Blink 182 lost the plot – do they really think a kid using his favourite 182 track to accompany his 30sec BMX clip should pay royalties; would you? Should we worry what we use to sound track our own home movies?

Blink 182’s new album ”˜Neighborhoods’ is expected out in late September.
