J-Dog only beat me to the punch here because I stayed late at work today.
It’s only fitting they released it on Youtube, because the video co-stars YT celebrities, half of whom I don’t know.
Still, the video is well done (and it’s about time Weezer’s done a video with lightsabers), humorous and entertaining.
Much like 2001, it is a great time to be a Weezer fan. The band has the new album coming out June 3. To promote the album, they’ve started a series of webisodes starring band members (in addition to Rivers’ ongoing Let’s Write A Sawng project). Along with the regular album, Weezer is releasing a deluxe version of the CD the same day (which would serve as the definitive album) and a bunch of other tracks (aside from the 14 tracks on the deluxe CD) to come in various markets, including:
- The Weight (The Band Cover)
- Life is what you make it (Talk Talk Cover)
- It’s easy
- I can love
- Are friends electric? (Tubeway Army Cover)
- Love my way (Psychedelic Furs Cover)
- Oddfellow local 151 (REM Cover)
Lots of interesting musical choices. Like I said, it’s a great time to be a Weezer fan.
