In the post, he shows a cross with “FRNK” carved into the top and flashing lights illuminating an arrow while explaining why it never showed up in the video.
The guitarist says he was rummaging through his basement recently and rediscovered the prop. It was built by Mary Attaway but unfortunately never got used due to time constraints.
Frank Iero explains that he and his team only had two days to put together both his “Weighted” video as well as “Joyriding.”
The actors were not available for as long as it would have been necessary to fully complete what they originally intended. On top of that, budgets were an issue.
He says how it was supposed to be featured in the video though.
“This glowing headstone would have been seen right after the Gradyville Growler’s bury my body in the pet sematary signaling their plan worked, right before i finally rose from the grave and… well, hilarity then ensues of course.”
Now, it just hangs in his basement along with other items from across his musical career.

This is my favorite video prop that never got used 😢. While rummaging through my basement this week i found this hidden gem. it was made by the very talented Mary Attaway for the Weighted video, directed by the handsome duo @ghostcowfilms . Unfortunately we only had 2 days to do both the Weighted and the Joyriding videos and although we made miracles happen in those two very short (but also long) days of shooting… our time constraints with the actors and budget ultimately forced us to cut a few things from my original treatment. This glowing headstone would have been seen right after the Gradyville Growler’s bury my body in the pet sematary signaling their plan worked, right before i finally rose from the grave and… well, hilarity then ensues of course. This treasure now hangs in my basement, along with many other relics meant to be unearthed and shared some other day. until then, keep the faith frendz. xofrnk
