Earlier this year Weezer released a cover of Toto’s “Africa” as per a fan’s urgent Twitter demands, which became their first top 100 hit of the decade. The band has just shared a video for the cover, which stars Weird Al Yankovic, who dresses as Rivers Cuomo in a recreation of their “Sweater Song” video.
The video is directed by Brendan Walter and Jade Ehlers, and it features Yankovic awkwardly rocking out with the rest of the band in front of the iconic Weezer blue background. Check out the video below.
Since Weezer shared “Africa,” Toto returned the favour by covering Weezer’s “Hash Pipe.” Here’s hoping Toto also releases a video starring Weird Al.
