Weezer Goes Viral

For the last few days folks have been going nuts over Weezer's new video. I saw it first pop up last week and now it's made the rounds to the point where people who aren't even Weezer fans have either seen it, heard about it or posted about it. No big deal, especially if the video is really cool but I don't think this one's it.

This is the video in question. I avoided seeing it until this morning when I just *had* to check to see what all the buzz was about and I have to say, I'm not all that impressed. Sure, it looks kind of cool but when did it become cause for celebration when someone incorporates all sorts of pop-culture references of the moment into a visual and it becomes a huge hit? I will admit, it was fun but I don't see the charm. Personally, I'd rather watch this:

Yeah, way cooler.

I'm a huge Weezer fan, and I've always enjoyed their videos. When I first saw the video for Pork and Beans, I didn't quite get it because I wasn't aware of all the pop culture references. I was like "isn't that the Leave Britney alone girl"? But I think their latest is a fun one!

Yeah, it took me a minute to clue into what they were doing but once I was "in the know" the whole video fell apart for me. That's not to say the song itself isn't good, I just don't see why the crazy amounts of love for the video.

Buddy Holly is still my fave.
