Finally, six days later, the frontman not only spotted the video – he also then recorded his own submission.
“Just adding to all the peeps singing our song…” he tweeted alongside a gloriously over-the-top impersonation of himself. You’re a good sport, sir.

This isn’t the first time that Tom has thrown things back to his blink days. In June last year, the frontman filmed himself lip-syncing along to I Miss You while in a restaurant, perfectly nailing his iconic ‘voice inside my yeeeeaddddddd’ line.
“This next record is probably going to be the best of my life,” the singer and guitarist told us late last year. “I have a lot to say, and I’ve been gone for a while, so I feel like I’m more prolific a songwriter than I’ve ever been. Angels & Airwaves aren’t pigeonholed into any one particular sound, and our fans are absolutely feverish about what we do and the message of the band. They really support who we are, so it’s a really great spot to be in.”
