Blink-182's 'Up All Night' video: Best ironic thank-you note ever?

Don’t tell Metallica, but Blink-182 is down with copyright infringement.

A newly released video for their comeback single “Up All Night” functions as a tongue-in-cheek thank-you note to their generation-Napster fan base: It’s a wry, affectionate montage cobbled from homemade YouTube clips that illegally use Blink-182’s music. Amateur musicians rock out and skaters show off their gnarliest tricks in “The Blink-182 Film Festival You Didn’t Know You Entered”—and we couldn’t love it more.

Watch Blink-182’s video love letter to their tech-savvy millennial fans after the jump.
