    All Time Low's music video for Dear Maria, Count Me In is iconic for a few reasons, including the actress who played Maria.

    Gilli Messer played Maria in the iconic 2008 video, and she's taken to TikTok to reveal she's still got one of the props from the shoot.

    In the TikTok, Gilli says, “In 2008, I played Maria in All Time Low’s Dear Maria, Count Me In video,” showing off a video of her cuddling the chimp she starred alongside in the video.

    Talking about the shoot to NME, ATL lead singer Alex Gaskarth told NME the chimp was a mixed bag to work with. “He was great the whole shoot, but there was one point where he got over what he was doing and threw a chimpanzee temper tantrum and went tearing off around the club where we were filming.

    "This is a baby chimp, but those things are strong as hell! So we couldn’t do anything until we was done having his little diva moment, but he was cute. All was forgiven!”
