Two Thoughts on the New Weezer Video

By now you've surely all seen this:



And yes, it is full of win, but it is worth noting and questioning,

1. Barenaked Ladies already did something similar last year.

2. It seems kind of....easy for a Weezer video. I mean, 'Buddy Holly' was a classic and the Muppet Show on 'Gone Keep Fishin' was sublime. But first the Playboy Mansion on 'Beverly Hills' and now this. Just seems kind of obvious. Although, I choose to by going such a route, Weezer are actually making a statement on the growing and unfortunate irrelevance of the music video, since the so-called music video channels no longer play them, leaving us no choice but to scurry onto the Internet to view them, the very place where these cameos found their 15 seconds.

Whoa, multitextual!
