Gamer Recreates Boomer From blink-182’s First Date Video In Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2
Despite being “in jail for undisclosed reasons” at the end of blink-182’s First Date video, Boomer has now seemingly been let out, and has found his calling as a skater.
As the world now loses every second of spare time to playing the new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 (yes, we are writing this from experience), one pop-punk fan has put their in-game creativity to good use by making Tom DeLonge’s iconic – but also pretty damn dodgy… – character from First Date: Boomer.
Reddit user @crimson_APD posted a a grab of their efforts online, designing Boomer to sport his signature handlebar moustache, shaggy mop of blond hair and yellow T‑shirt (which we see Tom wearing for most of the First Date video, before he then gets pretty much naked).
It. Is. Perfection.
Now, how about Mark Hoppus’ Spaulding and Travis Barker’s, er, Travis, get their own versions, too?
First Date is taken from blink-182’s classic fourth album, Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, which was released in 2001. Let’s take a trip down memory lane…
