The music video is a real answer to all the critics, it's like they were saying; "yes, drag queens, sailors, gay and old people, etc". We know what you are thinking but this is our world. Except they are smuggler, I suppose. :lol:

The video is well made.

I’m in love with the album version, and even though I don’t like drags, the video is so much fun and show a variety of sexual choices so everybody happy 😂. Great to see the boys on screen!

Was it Worth It.... New Your City Boy...again, really? To be the comeback to a proper video. I would prefered a different approach, not repetitive stuff... We already know this side of the PSB life...

Chris dancing with his face un-covered, and shameless close-ups of Neil singing were great things anyway! I celebrate those two things...but not the rest....
This is not my signature.

I guess not being a fan of drags automatically makes me homophobic then. That was easy :) Didn't know it was as simple as that. Good discussion. Have to listen to Hotspot now, if you excuse me 😂
Completely agree, personally I don’t like drag acts/shows and avoid them, does that mean I am also homophobic? I find that insulting.
I have no interest whatsoever in drag performance but it’s horribly jarring when someone takes offence at the notion that a video might be based solely around it (which it wasn’t) and starts banging on about it not being to their liking as though they have a right to dictate what the artist chooses to celebrate.

But if you want to feel insulted by using some strange internal logic to label yourself homophobic then go ahead.

It's awesome. I just love it and Chris's dancing. Reminds me of Was it worth it. Maybe this means that Chris will dance on the next tour once more. :D

Hugely enjoyable video, especially the end where it all goes a bit mad
Endless thoughts & questions keep me awake
