While many people thought Hanson went away, they haven’t gone anywhere. Their fun new music video for their single “Thinking ‘Bout Something,” debuted on the band’s Myspace page Thursday, and received over 400,000 views in the first 24 hours.
The three brothers from Oklahoma hit it big in 1997 with their major label debut, Middle of Nowhere, and the mega-hit song, “MMMBop.” Since then, the band slid out of the spot light, moving from Island Def Jam Records to their own independent label, 3CG Records.
Now, the band is set to release Shout It Out and the music video for “Thinking ‘Bout Something” pays homage to the legendary “Shake Your Tail Feathers,” scene from The Blues Brothers. Taylor, the middle Hanson brother and lead singer, plays the Ray Charles part, rocking the piano. His brothers Isaac and Zac play dual roles as musicians and as dancers. Weird Al inexplicably makes an appearance as a tambourine player in the back ground. It doesn’t really make sense, but it sure is awesome. The video is complete with choreography and large amounts of people dancing in the street. The brothers themselves look like they’re having way too much fun.
