My Son's First Video: Panic! At The Disco Music Video "The Ballad of Mona Lisa"

Here's a link to the P!ATD facebook page:

The video is here, as requested: The Ballad of Mona Lisa

Well, aired the video tonight. Darn it! They cut almost all of the kid takes. Dylan was supposed to originally do the main part until he got too scared. I didn't even see him in the crowd at all. :(  The girl that ended up doing his part did a great job though! It was a great experience and he says that he wants to try it again sometime, just not for a video with a dead body in it! 

Here are the pics from that day:

Dylan with the girls before we started

They had to do 3 hours of set school

The band is in the background getting lunch. Mmmm...that was the best free lunch ever! 

These were size 6 woman's capri pants. Those girls did wonders to make them look good on a 6 yr old boy!

The Director checking out Dylan's costume

He was getting super excited!

Makeup time

Then he came out and hung out with Brendon's (the main singer) hottie girlfriend Sarah. She was so nice to him!

After he got scared, he came out to watch the screen.

Really cool set

The bonus was that when we were sitting in the car, Lee DeWyze (American Idol winner) parked next to us. Dylan was really excited! He was a really nice guy and was taking pictures with everyone. We missed out because Dylan was in makeup that whole time!!!

My son was part of the newest P!ATD Music Video Shoot. The song is called The Ballad of Mona Lisa. I can't wait to see if he made the cut. He was only 6 yrs old and got scared. It's a dark, steampunkish style and included some scary content for him. It is really exciting though! Wish us luck!

I will add a picture of him at the shoot after it airs. I'm not supposed to until then!

It will air on at 12pm (I'm guessing Eastern Time) and then on MTV at 7:56pm!

Yes, this is where I learned of Steampunk and got inspired to make the earrings on an earlier post...Steampunk Earrings

PS I love steampunk, too. Have you read Cassandra Clare's latest book Clockwork Angel? It has a distinct steampunk vibe. It was one of the best books I read in 2010.
