I would apologize for posting about Blink 182 and One Direction in the same news post ... but I'm gonna. Instead I'm going to say that someone submitted us this image of both band's videos -- in the same location. OMG.

As you probably realized with Green Day announcing their own tour this morning, The speculated Pop Disaster Tour won't be happening. With that being said, Mark is up for the tour if they could make it happen. And if Blink's big news wasn't that, what do you think it is?
