ABC/Randy HolmesEven if Fall Out Boy didn’t release a new album this year, fans still felt they had plenty to dance, dance about: the band was responsible for one of the five most-viewed GIFs of 2017.
The GIF in question shows the live-size llama puppets featured in Fall Out Boy’s “Young and Menace” and “The Last of the Real Ones” videos, dancing against a purple background. According to GIF-sharing site GIPHY, the llama dance GIF was viewed 197 million times, making it the fourth-most popular of the year.
Both “Young and Menace” and “The Last of the Real Ones” appear on Fall Out Boy’s forthcoming album Mania, which was originally due out this past September. It’ll finally arrive on January 19.
The most-viewed GIF of 2017 was the “Love Gnome,” a stop-motion animation of a knitted gnome knitting a heart, which then floats away. That one was viewed a total of 340 million times.
