The Enema of the State 20 year celebration is continuing for blink-182 fans. Last week, the band embarked on a summer tour that sees them playing their seminal album in its entirety, and now they're recreating the iconic album art in a new tour video.
The original cover features adult film star Janine Lindemulder, so the band sought out a model in the same industry for "Travis' Pre-Tour Checkup." The minute-long clip features Riley Reid in that signature nurse outfit and a confused Travis Barker who's not quite sure what's going to happen to him on the examination table.
Watch the full clip below.
Enema of the State cover photographer David Goldman recently reflected on the photoshoot to The Face. “Initially the album was gonna be called Turn Your Head And Cough, so for me it seemed obvious – there would be a nurse and she would have a glove on and she would grab your balls and tell you to cough. That gesture implies a prostate exam but whatever – it’s a graphic shape. And they picked the model," he explained. “They were just three young guys who have asked for a porn star to be on their album and got her. It was an exciting time – they were kinda like high-school kids [who have] the hot girl showing them interest.”
Blink-182 is on tour all summer. Check out a full list of dates here.
