What better place to film Simple Plan’s video for their latest single, “Can’t Keep My Hands Off You,” than in a high school parking lot during prom. Prom is basically ground zero for borderline inappropriate fondling (well, if you’re lucky). The pop punk band’s video for the song, off of their yet untitled fourth studio album, brings us back to our high school days, even though we totally weren’t cool enough to have been invited to their party.
“Cant Keep My Hands Off You,” which is featured in the movie Prom, starts out with a bunch of drab looking teenagers looking super sad about the lame music playing over the loud speakers in their high school’s gym. But then — record scratch! (literally) — Simple Plan’s loud drums kick in, and everyone’s bum-rushing the band who’s going H.A.M. in the parking lot. Typical high school hijinks ensue: tee-peeing, food fights and getting rowdy on the football field.
Even though the song’s all about touching, the “Can’t Keep My Hands Off You” video is totally SFW. Oh, and the voice in the song during the second verse, that’s not lead singer Pierre Bouvier’s? It’s Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. Boom. Instant cool points.
