Panic will be at the 2008 VMAs. And if they win, director Shane Drake -- he also directed two videos up for a 2008 Best Rock Video VMA -- Paramore's "crushcrushcrush" and Fall Out Boy's "Beat It" -- will share the honors. Shane, one of the most creative and prolific directors of the decade, also directed Panic's "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" video, which won them the Video of the Year award at the 2006 VMAs.
In the Best Direction category, Panic's up against Erykah Badu's "Honey," Linkin Park's "Shadow of the Day," Rihanna's "Take a Bow," and Pussycat Dolls' six-time-nominated "When I Grow Up" video. Do you think "Nine In the Afternoon" retro-nuevo style can beat out the competition?
Watch "Nine In the Afternoon," check out Buzzworthy's behind-the-scenes footage of Panic at the video shoot, and tell us if you think Panic can pull it off.
Also, please tell us which member of PATD -- Brendon, Ryan (happy day-after-your-birthday, by the way), Spencer, or Jon -- will show up to the VMAs looking the most like George Harrison/ Devendra Banhart?
