Pete Knocks Up Ashlee to Save the Earth

by (@katespencer)

We like to think we have a sense of humor and “get” stuff, but this video, posted by Pete Wentz on his blog, makes no sense. In it, Pete concludes that he needs to take up the cause of illegal music downloading, and so he and his girlfriend Ashlee Simpson make a baby in protest. Get it? It’s some sort of sarcastic commentary on celebrity causes, apparently. Ashlee even makes a cameo, complete with a baby belly and a bag of Cheetos that is almost certainly a diss aimed at Britney Spears. Obviously the video’s a masterpiece, because everyone knows the Fall Out Boy bassist and his girlfriend are geniuses. Just listen to their music! We’re probably just too dumb to understand their hilarious, high-brow art form and message.

Of course some other people took the whole thing literally and assumed Ashlee was indeed knocked up. She’s not, obvs, but she might be engaged! The singer was spotted with some bling on that special finger, and she’s confirmed that it is a promise ring from her main man (Pete, not her dad). And you know what that means – a promise of more terrible videos to come!
