The video is for their latest single "Last Night" and pays homage to the band's favorite game show, "Family Double Dare," which aired on Nickelodeon in the early 1990's. Collaborating with Funny or Die, Good Charlotte went to great lengths to recreate every last detail of the game show – down to the on-set advertisements, "pie cam" and stagehands.
To get an authentic look, the action was lensed with 1990's television cameras that were borrowed from a Korean TV station. But the ultimate coup was convincing Marc Summers to reprise his role as the host of "Family Double Dare." The Red Team – "Cowabunga! And the Twins" which consists of Good Charlotte's Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Paul Thomas and Dean Butterworth – face off against The Blue Team – "The Cheese Cutters" in such physical challenges as "Breakfast in Bed" and "Ready, Set, Go" while guitarist Billy Martin jams in the performance scenes."This video takes place in the 90's and we were all 90's kids, so we know it pretty well. This was one of our favorite shows growing up. I always wanted to go on Family Double Dare, and now my dreams get to come true" says Benji Madden. Joel Madden adds "I think that we're all so excited to actually just meet Marc Summers cause as a kid he was an afternoon fixture".
"Having never done anything quite like this, I was a bit nervous and out of my element," says Summers. "The guys from Good Charlotte went out of their way to make me feel comfortable immediately. It was fun for me to see them become about eleven years old as they played on the set of their dreams!"
