Fidlar paradoy some absolute classics with their new video for 40oz on Repeat

Everyone’s favourite party band Fidlar have created an impressive montage of classic film clips from the 90s and 00s, convincingly recreated by the band themselves, for their new single 40oz. On Repeat.

“In the late 90s and early 2000s, music videos were such a huge deal,” singer and guitarist Zac Carper says. “We decided that instead of making one overly slick music video, we would nod to 15 of our favourite music videos that we grew up with. Everyone in the band threw in their ideas.”

What came out was a tribute to clips from bands like Green Day, Sugar Ray, Beastie Boys, Brittany Spears and Eminem – everyone’s childhood favourites – in a hilarious 3 minute 48 second package.

40oz. On Repeat will be taken from the LA band’s sophomore record Too, due out in September.
