Once he dropped the news, the details for how it’s going to operate were available.
Essentially, fans get to make their own creative version of a scene from the video and Frank Iero and the Future Violents are picking the winner.
They’re also making some tools available to fans participating with a printable version of the VHS tape from the video and the original performance footage from the shoot.

Dear Frends, Show us what you got! Here’s your chance to recreate the ‘Medicine Square Garden’ video in true DIY fashion. In the links below we have included a print at home version of the VHS tape from the ‘Medicine Square Garden’ music video (and a color-it-in version for you artists out there) as well as the original performance footage of The Future Violents doing our thing. Use these tools to recreate, parody, or just have fun in the stylings of your favorite doomed rockers. The band and I will choose our favorite submission to win a prop used in the video and maybe something else we’ll be announcing on Thursday (😉). Make sure to tag #DIYMSG on Instagram and/or Twitter to be considered. Winners will be announced June 5th – now get out there and get weird! xofrnk Band Performance Only Video: https://unfd.lnk.to/DIYMSG Foldable VHS: https://bit.ly/UNFDistancing-12
They’ll be revealing the winner on June 5.
In the video, Frank Iero And The Future Violents get viciously slaughtered by space alien thrash metal band GWAR.
