MGK’s Downfalls High musical gets over 16 million views on opening weekend
The movie adaptation of his 4K-rated pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall was unveiled via Facebook on January 15, and has now also been uploaded to YouTube following its initial premiere.
“Opening weekend did over 16 million views!!” says MGK. “Now we’re premiering it on YouTube today for everyone to watch. Thanks to everyone who helped us turn the album into its own world and era.”
Check out a whooooole bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff below:
“It was almost like shooting 14 music videos back-to-back, but with a narrative that’s outside of my personal life stories,” the musician previously told NME, adding that it was shot in just four days. “It focuses on other characters, and then me and [Travis Barker, blink-182] are just the narrators. It’s an interesting concept because it hasn’t been done for an album ever, maybe outside of like Pink Floyd’s The Wall.”
