And even better: it’s a recreation of the video for their classic The Sweater Song. Enjoy the cover:

And compare it to the original. Alas, fewer dogs in the new one.

  1. This has been playing on my Gym playlist for a long time. I love Weezer and I love this cover. I also adore the fact that they’ve used The Sweater Song as the background. This particular song is probably one of my all-time favourite drum solos / endings. It give me chills every time.

    Thanks for covering it. I never knew they did a video until now.

    1. You’re totally welcome! This one just tickled me today and I had to share it. There are some deep levels of music video geekery going on!

  2. Now it all makes sense! I have been hearing this song for like the last month on multiple channels and I couldn’t figure out why it was on every stations playlist. Thank you!
