Walk the Moon Become ’80s Video Game Characters for New Video

Walk the Moon’s 2016 is already looking like another great year for the Ohio-based band. On Friday (Feb. 12), the group debuted their music video for “Work This Body,” the latest single off of 2014’s Talking is Hard. The video kicks off with school-aged kids in a classroom learning French, but one particular student sticks out as he is dressed up like a video game character. As a bully throws a wad of paper at him, the kid looks down at his lunchbox which features video game character version of Walk the Moon. As the video progresses, we see a lunchtime talent show happen with a certain someone getting their just desserts in the process.

“‘Work This Body’ is a song about getting my ass in shape and standing up to my fears,” frontman Nick Petricca explained to Entertainment Weekly about the inspiration behind the song. “The video portrays a school kid much braver than I was who starts a revolution with a lunchbox. It’s a little nudge to the skeptic that there really are superheroes among us.”

Check out the music video below.

Earlier this month, Walk the Moon revealed that they would be hitting the road once again later this summer. The “Work This Body Tour,” is set to kick off on May 26 at the Open Air Theater in San Diego, CA. After a huge month-and-a-half gap, the tour will then pick up on July 13 at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn in Indianapolis before wrapping up on Aug. 20 in their home state of Ohio at Jacob’s Pavilion. Last fall, the band stopped by The Fillmore Miami Beach on their “Talking is Hard Tour.”
