5SOS Trades Cutoff Tees For Superhero Costumes In ‘Don’t Stop’ Video

5 Seconds of Summer has exhibited impressive dedication to their cutoff band tees—they even wore ’em for last night’s Billboard Awards performance, which was a BFD because it marked their U.S. TV debut. Wearing decades-old Misfits tees with the sleeves chopped off was a ballsy move, since the other dudes in attendance—Robin Thicke, Pitbull, Michael Jackson (sorta)—pulled out all the stops, but I’m giving enthusiastic applause for staying true to their style.

Which is why I’m surprised they went and switched things up on us for the “Don’t Stop” music video, their second single off their soon-to-be-released and soon-to-turn-my-world-upside-down debut album. The guys dropped jaws (and trou) by trading their now-ubiquitous cutoff shirts for superhero costumes. Their look was more Power Rangers than Avengers, but nonetheless, the masked vigilantes saved the day. Like actually saved the day, because it was a super lame Monday before this video entered the world, and now it’s super super. Because superheros.

Luke has literally never been seen without his distressed second-skin black jeans, so it’s no surprise that his superhero alter ego also embraces bottoms that are tight and black and very, well, brief.

Calum, whose original outfit could totally double as a superhero costume since around-the-waist flannels moonlight as capes, wore what was effectively a green man suit…and yet still managed to look dreamy?

Ashton’s propensity for muscle tees now makes sense—would you LOOK at those guns?!

Michael’s T-shirt says “IDIOT,” though dude’s anything but. Related: Why has there never been a superhero who matches his hair to his costume? Let’s start a letter-writing campaign to Marvel. We already know who could play him…
