He posted a polaroid photo on Instagram from 1999 where the three are sporting t-shirts, sneakers and the longest shorts of all time.
“The Handsomes, circa 1999, Time to bring back these shorts,” his caption read.

Other blink-182 news
Blink-182 just broke the internet after dropping their new song “Blame It On My Youth” off their upcoming album.
You can listen to the new track below.
Even though DeLonge is no longer with the band, he took to Instagram to thank fans for a sold-out tour and the success of the new Angels & Airwaves single, “Rebel Girl,” but also made time to shout out blink-182.
He did so in the form of an Instagram video.
“Just wanted to take a quick second and say thank you so much for the insane response to the Angels & Airwaves song, ‘Rebel Girl,’ and to the sell out of the national tour, our first one in seven years,” he says. “I thought we would have a lot of amazing fans show up, but I never thought that it would sell out in 10 minutes.”
The unexpected success of the tour perfectly illustrated DeLonge’s thoughts in a prior interview on the quickly developing resurgence of AVA.
“I feel like I really know I’m capable of most anything I put my heart and mind to, and I know how to do things that seem impossible,” he says.
“You’ll also see the new blink song [on Spotify],” DeLonge says. “I’m super excited for those guys. It’s cool to see the evolution of their music. You’ll also see Mark’s other band, Simple Creatures. It looks like a little bit of punk rock is seeping through on the national music lovers index.”
