Music sample

"In Too Deep" is a song by Canadian rock band Sum 41. It was released in September 2001 as the second single from the album All Killer No Filler.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld and premiered in September 2001. It is a parody of the diving competition from the Rodney Dangerfield classic, Back to School. Sum 41 face another dive team, represented as stereotypical high school "jocks" with muscular bodies and red Speedos. Each band member takes their turn diving off the board in comical fashion as they dive against their opposition who dive with mocking perfection. After guitarist Dave Baksh completes his dive, he then rises out of the water to play his guitar solo.(both Cone and Dave have confirmed this is copied from Guns N' Roses' video for "Estranged"). After each dive, the video cuts to a scene of the band playing in an empty pool surrounded by fans cheering along. On the last dive, drummer Steve Jocz does a comically dramatic dive (similar to the dive done by Dangerfield's character in Back to School, also known as the 'Triple Lindy') in which he bounces off of every diving board and lands perfectly in the water. He is rewarded with perfect marks from the judges. The band wins, and in celebration, some of the judges and audience dive into the pool in celebration.

The diving scenes were filmed at the since-demolished Industry Hills Aquatic Club in the City of Industry, California. The pool scenes were shot at the Cadillac Jack's and Pink Motel in Sun Valley California.

Reception[edit]

Superpeer of Sputnikmusic said "This song just puts a smile on your face, and you have to love the short solo in it."[2]
