Green Day’s “Oh Love” video doesn’t premiere until Wednesday, but we’ve got a sneak peek of the new clip right now — and let’s just say, from what we’ve seen so far, Billie Joe Armstrong wasn’t joking about that whole “crotch area” thing.
That’s because the Samuel Bayer-directed video finds Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool up to their elbows in beautiful — and sufficiently tattooed — models, who languidly lounge around a dilapidated party space while the guys rock out (and try very hard not to get caught staring).
It’s all in keeping with the rather salacious spirit of the song itself, which Armstrong summed up to MTV News last month as “leading with your heart and not necessarily your brain … and maybe losing your mind, and shooting a little bit more from the crotch area.”
You can catch the full “Oh Love” video this Wednesday, August 15, at 7:49 p.m. ET on MTV, and then stick around for an exclusive 30-minute interview with Green Day to follow on MTV.com, where the band will answer fan-submitted questions and discuss their upcoming trio of new albums , ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! They’ll also talk all about the making of the “Oh Love” clip itself (“We had a good time making it,” Armstrong joked. No duh, dude).
But until the big premiere, this teaser clip will have to suffice. Watch it and try not to get jealous — after all, being in a big-time rock band certainly has its perks.
Green Day’s “Oh Love” video premieres Wednesday, August 15, at 7:49 p.m. ET on MTV as part of “MTV First: Green Day.” Fans outside the United States can watch by visiting OhLove.MTV.com simultaneously.
