Thanks to Aussie foursome 5 Seconds of Summer, the feel-good summer hits are still coming well into October. The band has just dropped the second single from their upcoming 2015 album Sounds Good Feels Good, which is set to be released this Friday.
Hey Everybody! is a high energy pop anthem for anyone who has ever had to work a job they couldn’t stand just to make a few bucks. Borrowing the melody from Duran Duran’s 1982 classic Hungry Like The Wolf, 5SOS’s new track declares “Hey everybody / We don’t have to live this way / We can all get some / Yeah we can all get paid”.
The boys get the acting bug in the new video, which shows members Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Michael Clifford slugging it out in office jobs, working as a dog walker, children’s party entertainer and a human hot dog. The band members eventually hit it big and have their baller moments, dancing in fur coats in a room full of bills and enjoying life in a Hollywood mansion.
The video ends with an update on how each member of 5SOS made their money, including Ashton’s new gig as the mascot for a Canadian basketball team. He sounds like the luckiest guy out of the bunch.
