[ # ] Good Charlotte play a good game of Family Double Dare!
March 15th, 2011 under Good Charlotte

Good Charlotte debuted their new music video for Last Night on Funny or Die and it will bring many of us back to the happy times in out childhood. Just like what Weezer did with Happy Days, the band has done by recreating their favorite (and ours) game show Family Double Dare! I guess when you are living the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, you can live out your childhood fantasies!
The band wanted to recreate the original feel so much so that they borrowed cameras from a Korean TV station to get that ’90s look. Getting that look was easier than trying to get Marc Summers to recreate his role as the host of the show. But the band worked their magic and got him aboard. Here is what the game show said about it, “”Having never done anything quite like this, I was a bit nervous and out of my element,” Summers said. “The guys from Good Charlotte went out of their way to make me feel comfortable immediately. It was fun for me to see them become about eleven years old as they played on the set of their dreams!” Now I want to know if it was Paul Thomas’ dream to play the mom and kiss his bandmate Dean Butterworth? I wonder if he would say it was Worth it because Dean’s kiss was like Butter! Yes that was a cheesy joke, but wasn’t that made Family Double Dare so awesome? And that is what made Good Charlotte’s video so freaking perfect.
To quote Charlie Sheen, the video for Last Night is “Winning!” Just like their fifth album Cardiology that is out now!!!
One last note, I am so happy that Good Charlotte not only went back to the ’90s to bring back a fun game show, but also went back to creating a real music video like they used to make back in the day. I miss music videos that were more than the artist just singing and/or dancing to their song.
