The new video for Fall Out Boy's Folie A Deux single "I Don't Care" hit the web yesterday, only it wasn't the video Pete Wentz wanted you to see. After seeing that the video for sale on iTunes was full of product placement shots for Nokia phones, Wentz took to his blog to say, "This will probably end up deleted either by me or someone else but the version of the video that we worked on night after night is not the version that aired. Yet somehow a cut full of glorious camera phone shots did. Just to let you know. It doesn't make any sense to us. That bag of money is being donated straight to a cause far more worthy." Wentz was right; the initial post was deleted and replaced with a still of Popeye with "Censored" taped over his mouth. The band's label pulled down the Nokia cuts of the video that popped up on YouTube. Did the label really surreptitiously sneak product placement into videos while keeping Wentz out of the loop? Detective Wentz is on the case.
