You’ve seen Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, right? In case you haven’t, here’s the general gist of it: boy meets girl, has to defeat her evil exes, lots of meta-jokes and video game references ensue. There, now you’re all up to speed for the music video for “Gloom Boys” from Waterparks (via Alternative Press).
In this case, our hero is an aspiring bass player that would like to be part of the band (and really likes orange rinds for some reason). Instead of fighting relationship exes, he must fight the group’s ex bass players. These range from a vaping, dabbing bro to a literal cardboard cutout. Whether you’re a fan of Scott Pilgrim or Waterparks, there’s sure to be something in the video that will make you laugh.
“Gloom Boys” is from the band’s debut album Double Dare, which was released in November 2016. Good thing our hero didn’t wait any longer. Who knows how many more bass players there might have been?
