's new video for 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' is an apocalyptic roller-coaster ride in the vein of Mad Max
. As you can see from the exclusive-to-AOL photos, the video also features members of the band Mindless Self Indulgence
, with guitarist Steve, Righ? as the DJ, "Dr. Death Defying," and vocalist Jimmy Urine as the main evil villain "Draculoid" who, along with his henchmen, is out to take down My Chemical Romance. Not only is the video for 'Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)' an obvious reference to 'Mad Max,' there are countless movie and video game references throughout. As MTV
points out, it also pays tribute to films like 'Blade Runner
,' 'Easy Rider
,' the TV show the 'A-Team
' and even the Nintendo Entertainment System. With its shoot-out scene at the close, the video is left open-ended and we're left wondering if, much like the movies the video references, we'll see the characters returning for a sequel.
Frontman Gerard Way had this to say about the video "The vision for the "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na) video came to me when I was in the desert this past January. We chased an album and a vision and the result is my best friends and I making art that we're excited for you to see."
