"Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" (pronounced "thanks for the memories") is the third 2007 single released by the Chicago band Fall Out Boy. It is featured on their 2007 release Infinity on High. The song, according to bassist Pete Wentz in an interview with Kerrang!, refers to a romantic relationship in which the initial sentiments have perished, but both lovers continue to "sleep with each other" to appease their physical and mental desires. The title, "Thnks fr th Mmrs" is the words "thanks for the memories" after having been disemvowelled, much like it would be written as part of a text message. Another reason for the song title's lack of vowels comes as joking nod at Fall Out Boy's record company, who have asked them to shorten their often verbose song titles. The line that appears near the end of each chorus, "He tastes like you, only sweeter," is a line from the movie Closer.
It is a playable song on Band Hero.

Music video

The music video starts out with Patrick and Pete talking before filming the video, with Patrick asking Pete asking if he was sure about something and Pete replies, "Patrick, the guy's a f*%#ing visionary." The song then starts up, and then all of a sudden a monkey, yells "Cut!" and calls the band a "joke," complaining that he should have hired Panic! at the Disco, and then texts somebody on his phone, complaining that the band was "wack." Later, Andy was replaced by another monkey, and when he tried to retrieve his drumsticks, he was thrown out of the studio. Other scenes show the band playing the song on a brightly lit stage with the letters "FOB" in the background, and the band's different communications with the monkeys. Pete then sits on a bed and attempts to kiss Kim Kardashian, only to have the monkey stop him and show him the correct way to kiss her. Unhappy with the monkey's demands, Pete tries to leave, but then he and Kim kiss and Pete decides to stay. In the final scene, Pete breaks the choreography. As the monkey angrily complains about his behavior, he smashes his bass guitar into the "B" from the "FOB" lights on the back wall, then leaves the stage. The "FO" is to represent "F*** off". It is very similar to Sum 41's video for 'Still Waiting'.On youtube the video has about 40,000,000 views.
The "FOB" lights on the back wall of the video can be seen floating on the water in the music video for Fall Out Boy's What a Catch, Donnie.

Parody

In 2009, a parody of the song titled "N Thnks 2 Th Jmmys" ("No Thanks To The Jimmys" disemvoweled like the original) appeared on the Craig Ferguson fansite CraigForum.com. It is written about late night being "fine, no thanks to the Jimmys" (the "Jimmys" it refers to are fellow late-night hosts Kimmel and Fallon) and is often taken as a satire of celebrity idolization among teenagers. As of May 2009, a video for this version was posted on YouTube; the actual song, however, was not recorded, and the video consisted only of the parody lyrics synched to the original Fall Out Boy song.
