  • When Panic! At The Disco mainman Brendon Urie goes out with this friends, he wants to have a good time but inevitably ends up embarrassing them with his uninhibited public dancing. Urie then gets annoyed when the next time they go out he doesn't get invited.

    You can't take me anywhere, anywhere
    Can't take me anywhere, anywhere
    I'm still uninvited, I'm still gonna light it, I'm going insane


    Urie told Coup De Main: "I'm always that obnoxious friend that's dancing in public, and they're embarrassed to be around me. So I was like, 'Hey man! Don't leave me out of the loop! I'm here to dance and have a good time. It's not a crime! So if you do it without me, I'm gonna be pissed. So call me and let's hang out, I'm all about the hangs.'"
  • The Brandon Dermer-directed music video features The Amazing Beebo, Brendon Urie's felt-covered, alcoholic puppet alter-ego. During the clip, Beebo attends a Panic! show but he parties up a little too hard and incurs the singer's wrath.

    Beebo previously appeared in the Panic! visual for "Hey Look Ma, I Made It."
