Panic at the Disco Shrink in New Video

Panic at the Disco recently filmed the video for ‘That Green Gentleman’ in L.A., which finds the band turned Russian dolls that shrink in size. The video also featured a number of extras, who won the chance to hang with Panic and Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz after they submitted their best lip-synching videos, filmed on their Nokia N95 phones, to ‘I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.’

“We all saw the ones that won and then a few other ones that were right up there with it,” Panic’s Spencer Smith tells PopEater. “That was pretty funny. It’s always a good laugh to see the lip-synch videos.”

Smith says the band was into the idea the moment Nokia presented it. “We hadn’t really been interested in any kind of thing with a company before this,” he says. “But it was a different way to actually involve the fans.”

As an added bonus, having the fans there also gave the quartet some new perspective on their relationship with those who listen to their music. “It puts you back in your place,” Smith says. “You see how excited these people are to be a part of something you’re doing. It makes us realize that we’ve got a very amazing life.”
