Today's tune "Uma Thurman", taken from the album "American Beauty/American Psycho". The Video was released Apr 17, 2015. The song's music video follows a girl named Sarah who wins the prize of becoming FALL OUT BOYs assistant for 24 hours. Her tasks include walking Joe Trohman's zebra, singing karaoke with Patrick Stump, going paint-balling and go-kart racing with Pete Wentz, and working out with Andy Hurley.
Sarah's last task is to get inside a tank and smash a truck with the letters "Article 1, Section 36.03" written on the side: a reference to Alabama's Supreme Court blocking same-sex marriage in the state.
