British Invasion: The Wanted Take on Beatlemania (VIDEO)
After debuting the official video for their latest single “I Found You,” The Wanted have released a second clip for the hit song in honor of their fans.
The fan-inspired video is quite a departure from the original version, which featured the fivesome — Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuinness and Siva Kaneswaran — showing off their tough side as suave gangsters. The video’s explicit nature even warranted a parental advisory warning on YouTube.
But this time around, it’s nothing but good, clean fun as the boys channel — wait for it — The Beatles.
In the clip, The Wanted pay tribute tribute to one of pop culture’s historic moments: Paul, John, George and Ringo making their their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
Nathan, Siva, Max, and Jay bring on the swoons as they rock out in front of hundreds of screaming teenyboppers. Excitement gets the best of the fans as they rush the stage, prompting the boys to make a quick getaway while the girls run after them.
“I Found You” is the first single off their upcoming album, Third Strike.

“We are looking to do a huge world tour,” Parker told MTV News. “Go back to different countries we’ve visited this year. We are going to do South America, do a tour in the U.S., our arena tour in the U.K. and then we’ve got our album coming out as well. In fact, we might do two albums. We are talking about next year, so we are going to have a busy year, if not busier than this year.”
