The original video, posted in February 2015, shows the band playing a hapless gave of basketball. In January 2016, Fall Out Boy released a new music video for their remix of "Irresistible" featuring Demi Lovato. The clip is a homage to the Toy Story
narrative of the 'N Sync clip for "It's Gonna Be Me
." In this instance, Fall Out Boy and 'N Sync both exist in the same store as figurine, but the Fall Out Boy dolls are unwanted.
The video is directed by Wayne Isham, the guy who helmed the "It's Gonna Be Me" visual. It features cameos by the boyband's Chris Kirkpatrick (as an assembly line worker) and Joey Fatone (as an employee in the toy store). Lance Bass also tweeted his approval.
The band wrote in a post: "I was looking back at the video for 'It's Gonna Be Me' - where they come to life as dolls - and we thought was there an analog to this story. Like somewhere in that same store was there a dollar bin full of toy that no one really wanted that would band together like the misfit, offbrand little outsiders they were.
The toys no one ever wanted come to life. Where would our band have fit in that story? We called up Wayne Isham, the director who did the original video (as well as some of our other favorite Mötley Crüe
videos), and pitched ideas back and forth.
Before long we came with the treatment- and were lucky enough to get a few cameos from the original source; as well as our partner in crime on the song Demi Lovato."
