Check Out GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Cyrus Hobbi in a New Music Video!

To GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers, Cyrus Hobbi is easily recognized as Valentin’s bodyguard, Yuri. But to fans of the pop-punk band Bowling For Soup, Hobbi is known for his tongue-in-cheek portrayal of wannabe star Bradley Pitts in the music video from the group’s single “I Wanna Be Brad Pitt,” released earlier this year off of the album Pop Drunk Snot Bread. And now, Hobbi is featured again in the band’s newest video!

In the video for the single “Hello Anxiety,” which dropped this week, Hobbi stars as Fred Christmas, a salesman stuck in an office job with crazy co-workers and overwhelmed by his anxiety. As the video unfolds, Fred navigates the pressures of his career and home life — sometimes stressed out, sometimes handling things better — before finding a way to cope with his anxiety by the end of the song. “BFS’s newest music video, titled “Hello Anxiety” is now on YouTube,” the GH actor announced on Instagram, sharing the clever video and punctuating his caption with a waving hand emoji and the grinning face with sweat emoji, perhaps indicating that he was nervous about the video’s debut.

While “Hello Anxiety” tackles the tough subject of mental health on a greater level, the catchy, upbeat tune is relatable to most people thanks to lyrics that list all kinds of anxiety-inducing situations, like being “late for work again,” having a “date night, we always fight,” and the eternal optimism of “let’s try again today.”

According to BFS frontman Jaret Reddick — who is a mental health advocate — anxiety is something he knows all too well. “It was important to me that it didn’t turn out just like all the other songs about mental health,” he shared in a statement. “There comes a point in your life when you can just feel it coming, and you almost have to laugh. It isn’t funny by any means, but geez… how do I see it coming so often now? That’s what this song is!”

Check out Hobbi in the video for “Hello Anxiety” below — complete with Fred leading a choreographed dance number at the end of the song!
