Blink 182 Goes For 'Stoner' Look On New Video

Blink 182 has finally unveiled the video for the song “First Date,” which was shot in Vancouver last August. In typical Blink fashion, the group does its best to infuse comedy into the clip.

“We shot it in Canada over the summer and I think it’s our best video by far,” explained Mark Hoppus. “I think it’s the funniest video…it’s just a video with a lot of character. We’re ’70s stoners just cruising the streets of Southern California…We’re ’70s stoners propelled into the future.”

“First Date” was directed by Emmit and Brendan Malloy. New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert makes a cameo in the clip, hitting a whiffle ball.

“First Date” is the third single from Blink’s latest album, Take Off Your Pants And Jacket.
