Watch Panic! At The Disco’s New Video For Dancing’s Not A Crime
The Amazing Beebo – aka a badass puppet version of Brendon Urie – has made his return in Panic! At The Disco’s new video for Dancing’s Not A Crime.
The latest video from Panic!’s Pray For The Wicked album is a continuation of the story from Hey Look Ma, I Made It, and features The Amazing Beebo “breakin’ allllll the rules”. Just how we like him, then.
When we caught up with Brendon himself last year to find out about all things Pray For The Wicked, the frontman said of Dancing’s Not A Crime: “Basically, when we go out, when I go out with my friends, I’m the friend the embarrasses everybody by just being the centre of attention. Everybody looks, and they’re just like, ‘Who the fuck…? Dude…’ They get so mad at me, like, ‘Come on, man!’ So the song is really like, ‘Hey, if you’re going out, then I’m going with you, and I’m gonna be dancing! I’m gonna lose my shit!’ That’s more just celebratory, and the verses are talking a little darker – the things that I think that we all focus on, that don’t need to be focussed on: the stresses of life, or the relationships that don’t matter, or stuff like that. Just dance it up, you know? I think that that exercise is going to relieve a lot of that stress. If you’re feeling angry, or if you’re feeling stressed out, just dance it out (laughs)!”
