The Ready Set and Pete Wentz parody 'The Godfather' in new video--EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Has The Ready Set—a.k.a. Jordan Witzigreuter, the artist behind the clap-your-hands-and-sing-along “Love Like Woe”— allowed his Top 40 success to go to his head?

Probably not, but he has let his obsession with The Godfather run rampant in a new video guest-starring pop-punk poster boy Pete Wentz that is exclusively available at EW:

Following the recent release of his glitchy electro-pop anthem “Young Forever,” this webisode finds Witzigreuter putting on a mustache and ‘donning’ his best (worst) Vito Corleone impersonation for a confused Wentz.

The video was filmed at Wentz’s house, which makes one wonder if there is some sort of couch surfing network available only to emo hitmakers (although it probably has more to do with the fact that Wentz signed and produced the Ready Set’s debut).

What do you think of the Ready Set’s new single? Does Jordan do a good Brando, or does his comprehensible enunciation and lack of baldness give him away?
