Every card-carrying member of the MCRmy knows that [artist id="1231843"]My Chemical Romance[/artist]‘s “Na Na Na” video doesn’t premiere until (very early) Thursday morning — 12:01 a.m. early, to be exact — on MTV.com. But they might not be aware that the band also shot a whole lot of behind-the-scenes footage while they were making the video, and because they know how hard waiting is, My Chem decided to send us over a little snippet. What can we say? They’re nice guys.
So, in this exclusive 30-second clip, we see MCR in all their Killjoy glory, gearing up at their secret hideout and then hitting the desert, where they duel with some villainous vampires. There are also cameos by Dr. Death Defying, a radio-clutching kid (who sort of looks like mini Ray Toro) and a Spandex-clad roller bandit, plus nods to the nefarious Korse — the leader of those evil vamps — and the mysterious Better Living Industries. So, yeah, they pack a lot into one video.
Last week, our friends over at the Buzzworthy blog brought you four photos from the set of the “Na Na Na” clip , which was co-directed by Roboshobo and MCR frontman Gerard Way. The song is the first single from the band’s upcoming, much-anticipated Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, which is due November 22.
But why are you still reading this? Check out some behind-the-scenes footage right now! The full “Na Na Na” video will premiere Thursday at 12:01 a.m. ET on MTV.com, and then will air later that night — following a new episode of “Jersey Shore” — at 11 p.m. ET on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, MTV Hits and MTV Tr3s.
