That Instagram clip isn't going to win too many new people over is it?

Well, of course it could a nice blonde with big tits, but would it change anything? It does not matter. Listen and watch Polish superstar Stachursky. He knows how to mobilize younger generation of male fans :)

I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

And then some people ask themselves why the critics talk about PSB and make jokes about them with adjetives like "gay", "camp" or whatever. :mrgreen:

Nobody says the opposite. I'm not homophobic.

Am I right in thinking this is the first non-lyric video since Thursday in 2013?
You forgot 20something from 2016.

Around 50 people are going to appear on the video and more than 30 people like part of the film crue. I think A Red Letter Day probably had more people around and Together maybe (with all the crowd watching dancers perform in a disco and then in a theatre).

Sadly I agree. I know, I KNOW it shouldn't matter, and for this PSB fan, I don't give a Monkey Business, but I thought exactly the same when I saw it.

Some people will see that clip and automatically go "Well, I'm not even listening to Hotspot."

It's sad and I do honestly wish it weren't true.

I for one am stoked to see the new video AND listen to the album. This is going to be an absolutely fabulous week!

a Drag queen. oh wonderful! I am trying to work this out in my head as a straight guy. had it featured male model looking dudes I GET THAT at least. these are 2 gay guys who want to put their lifestyle into the video, fine... it makes a certain kind of sense.

what I dont get is why drag queens are pulled into the equation. for instance, if I am watching a Def Leppard video, as a straight guy I would like to see some hot women in it...I wouldnt expect a group of female clowns to suddenly show up in it. so why they want to see essentially a group of clowns in their video is beyond me. possibly I dont have my finger on the pulse of the gay community. maybe [offensive word removed by forum admin] are just a part of it, like leather and chaps. but cripes sakes man why do they have to tie such an great song with this?
