No but seriously, I keep hearing fireworks and stuff going off around my neighborhood at 11PM and it’s been over a week since that holiday. Y’all have no chill.
Well, at least we get fabulous PMVs like this one as a result! That’s right, it’s another Fall Out Boy song, but it’s got excellent visuals from an editor who we don’t see much of. There isn’t too much ingenuity, but everything works together like a true piece of art and it keeps a focus through the lyrics.
To start with the effects, they were really the glue that held the piece together. Things got a little shaky with the introduction of still images (often the sign of a subpar edit) but the colored light leaks and transitions kept everything running smoothly. The shipping story here isn’t too differential from the lyrics, but it does a nice job with the limited clip selection and really brings everything back together with a greater focus.
