The Fall Out Boy musicians get crazy and political in their new music video “Uma Thurman.”

The music video, released on Friday on YouTube, is the hijinks that ensure when a girl, Sarah, wins a contest to become an assistant to the band.  But besidesserving the guys food and coffee, she gets to walk a zebra, play paintball, use a weird indoor skydiving machine, ride in a dune buggy and on a mechanical bull and decorate lead singer Patrick Stump with live bunnies while riff’s from The Munsters theme song play in the background.

The video makes a strong statement at the end: Sarah is tasked with painting the word “Uma”  in red paint on a tank bearing two American flags, riding it and literally steamrolling a pickup truck bearings the words “Article 1, Section 36.03,” which is from Alabama’s constitution and bars same-sex marriage licenses from being issued in the state.

Go Boys Go!
