Simple Plan’s new video for their song Singing In The Rain is fun. Simple Plan is clearly enjoying themselves and they show off their sense of humour about themselves and the music industry. The song is upbeat, happy and likely you will have it stuck in your head after you watch the video. The video starts off with the band playing in a 1964 “Battle of the Bands”.
The drummer fumbles with the drumstick and they clumsily take the stage. Once the band starts playing it becomes obvious to the audience in the gym that this band is talented. The story goes from there and shows us the bands road to stardom. Through the good and the bad times of success the band takes us on a journey, giving us the impression that they put on a happy “singing in the rain” face regardless of what is going on within the band. They have fun with it, we see a newspaper clipping saying that David joins a cult. Its nice to see when a band shows that they don’t take themselves too seriously and they have the confidence to just enjoy themselves. All the while they portray realities of success.
