Weezer - rounding up pop culture
Weezer continues their rule over all music videos with a new release for their upcoming Pork and Beans single off of their new self-title "Red Album.". This time, no dogs, no Happy Days, no High Hefner or Spike Jonze...they round up and incorporate the last few years of Internet YouTube "stars." Did we really need to give Tay Zonday or Gary Brolsma another second of fame? How many can you name/remember? And yes, that is the real Gary of the Numa Numa and the real Tay Zonday featured in the video. Don’t know those names? You may not get a kick out of it then…Nonetheless, Weezer continues their string of famous and cult-followed music videos.
