Tom DeLonge Wants His 'First Date' Character To Have His Own Beer Brand

Blink-182 has released some pretty iconic music videos, and perhaps one of the most memorable (or at least funniest) is "First Date." The Take Off Your Pants and Jacket visuals star the trio as three nimwit dudes named Boomer (Tom DeLonge), Spaulding (Mark Hoppus), and Travis (Travis Barker) living in El Segundo, California in 1974. The group gets into all kinds of trouble while on the hunt for foxy ladies, and Boomer ends up in jail for "undisclosed reasons." Apparently, he's been freed because on Friday (August 9), DeLonge took to Instagram to announce that he thinks his character should have his own beer brand (for the record, we 100% agree).

"I think Boomer should have a beer brand," he captioned a photo of himself dressed as the mustachioed ex-convict. "Anybody work at a beer company that wants to collaborate on a white-trash California brew with me? Imagine if you are at a bar, and you order a “Boomer’s” - Instantly, you’d have small shorts and hot ladies on your arm. DM me if you are interested. :)"

Check out the hilarious post and revisit the "First Date" video below.

Though DeLonge is no longer part of blink-182, he's keeping himself plenty busy with his UFO research firm, To The Star Academy of Arts and Science and making music with Angels & Airwaves. We're still hoping he reunites with Mark and Travis someday, and from the sounds of it he'd like that too.
