The year was 2006. Taking Back Sunday was in their prime, and heading the group was lead singer Adam Lazzara.
As a tween in the early aughts, pop/punk/rock bands were your bread and butter.
So when their music video for "MakeDamnSure" was released, you had no idea what was in store.
The video opens with that mop of hair attached to a microphone, and you were intrigued.
He looks into the camera, and it's like he's looking right at YOU.
He inches closer to the camera, and you get pulled closer to the screen.
Dat. Microphone. Swing.
He pops his hip. You fall deeper under his spell.
OH MY GOD. That smirk. That attitude.
He seduces you through the camera lens. You are officially in love.
He swaggers toward you. You are convinced he's putting on a show just for you.
His passion draws you in further.
His hair flows in the wind, and your cheeks flush.
You are basically dead now.
The video ends. You're done.
