The song nobody expected to hear but loves the rendition NOW has a music video! After a fan tweeted the group asking for a cover of Toto’s song “Africa,” Weezer delivered one of the greatest covers of the song! An official music video for “Africa” was released yesterday!
The “song of the summer” music video stars Weird Al Yankovic in place of Rivers Cuomo! The music video is a parody of “Undone- The Sweater Song” and Weezer chose one of the BEST people to put in a parody video, Weird Al Yankovic!! Weird Al is singing and dancing along to “Africa” with the group.
I absolutely love the nostalgic aspect to the music video, the transition from black and white to the iconic one color background. Weezer is known for having older album covers with one colors. The blue in the music video is similar to the group’s set-titled album Weezer.
Do you love the song and music video as much as we do? Let us know @1061BLI.
