blink-182 may be frantically hyping up their latest record and forthcoming album, but we’re all desperately yearning for the past. Thankfully, a commercial has emerged that has brought us all back to the glory days of blink-182. The age where lip rings glistened and heightened SoCal accents ruled the airwaves. 2001.
Back in 2001, blink-182 launched a promotional campaign for their record Take Off Your Pants and Jacket. The campaign features Tom Delonge and Mark Hoppus posing as medical experts for a pharmaceutical company. The pair sell a “product” that provides release from a painful stomach.
“When my painful stomach acts up, I turn to the one product that’s scientifically proven to work — blink 182, now with 50 percent better songs.”

Earlier this year it was revealed that the upcoming blink-182 record will harken back to their 2003 Untitled album.
“We want to do with our band what we did in 2003 with Untitled,” Hoppus shared, “Where we take our foundations and go off in completely weird directions.”
Drummer Travis Barker further echoed this statement, explaining “I feel like this is the closest we’ve come to something like [2003’s] Blink-182 since that album, which is one of my favourite Blink albums by far.”
“I feel like [2016’s] California was similar to [1999’s] Enema of the State and [2001’s] Take Off Your Pants and Jacket: reestablishing the band, giving fans what they really want and expect from Blink,” he continued.
