Warning: R5's latest video might leave your jaw on the floor. Because, um, how did they sing the song frontwards while everything else in the video was backwards?

On Tuesday (Dec. 23), the family band (plus one best friend), dropped the video for their song "Smile" on R5.mtv.com, and before we investigate any further, here it is:

The pop rock band, named for their five alliterative names -- Riker, Rydel, Rocky, Ross Lynch and Ratliff -- are gearing up to release their next project, the follow-up to 2013's Louder.

“As far as the theme goes, we were really going for something new, I’m not giving too much away, I’m thinking about what I’m saying because I don’t want to give it all away,” Ross told MTV back in July. “But our last record is called Louder and or EP was called Loud, which is also the name of many other records so we decided we wanted to make something very different.”
