Blink-182 haven’t gotten any less weird with age, and that’s never clearer than in “Brohemian Rhapsody,” the last song on their new album, California. Like “Built This Pool” before it, the 40-second track is an exercise in the abruptness of punk — a quick blast of absurdity built around an energetic riff and a single silly lyric: “There’s something about you I can’t quite put my finger in.”
So how in the world could Blink whip up a music video for “Brohemian Rhapsody” that befits its ridiculousness, you may ask? Easy: they get Mumford & Sons (basically the trio’s polar opposites) to shape-shift into a SoCal pop-punk band, complete with posi jumps and phallic fruits.
