Touring bands, especially those that regularly join the annual nationwide summer party that is the Vans Warped Tour, tend to make a ton of friends—they’d have to be intensely anti-social not to. But what about a band that have been on the road for nearly 21 years? Yeah… that’s a lot of friends.

Such is the case with ska-punk forefathers Less Than Jake, who put out a Bat-Signal of sorts to people they’ve met over the past two decades to star in their new music video for My Money Is On the Long Shot.”

The end result shows the Gainesville, FL-based quintet and their close friends goofing off and singing along to the track from LTJ’s critically acclaimed ninth studio full-length, See The Light. And the video’s guest list is basically a who’s who of bands from the Warped Tour circuit, past and present.

Members of NOFX, All Time Low, Goldfinger, Big D and The Kids Table, New Found Glory, The Wonder Years, Mixtapes, Falling In Reverse, The Swellers, Reel Big Fish and many, many more all appear.

“We asked our friends to sneak away from their real lives for a half-hour and record themselves in a way that brought out their personalities,” says drummer Vinnie Fiorello. “In the end, everyone totally exceeded the expectations.”

UK fans have the chance to catch Less Than Jake on tour with Reel Big Fish and Zebrahead shortly, as they head out on tour in February:
