Watch Bleachers Perform ‘Rollercoaster’ On CONAN Alongside An Adorable Group Of Mini-Me’s

If you ask us, Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff isn’t just a musician; he’s a true artist. And we don’t just mean that in a musical kind of way. The New Jersey native has a way of taking advantage of any opportunity to turn what otherwise might be a hum-drum event and create a a piece of performance art out of it.

Take, for example, the band’s recent appearance on Conan, where they performed the second single off their debut album, “Rollercoaster.” Instead of going through the motions like most bands do when they perform on late-night TV, Antonoff & Co. decided to turn it into a “happening” by playing alongside twinsie miniature versions of themselves.

 

Pretty eerie resemblance, don’t you think? Either way, check out Bleachers’ inventive performance of “Rollercoaster” on Conan.

If you’d like to watch the song’s official video, directed by Richard Shepard (Dom Hemingway, The Matador, which features the band performing on top of a moving ice-cream truck, here you go.

    Are you encouraging us to watch the video so we could laugh at it?  Perhaps a good concept but the kids were terrible. They clearly had no practice, couldn’t mouth the words or come close to mimicking how to play their instruments. 

    • yeah, what a bunch of loser kid scum bags, right? what where they thinking? why were they even trying?!… pffft what a waste of time. 

      Go back to your skateboards and pacman video machines ya dum kidz! *shakes broom
