Weird Al Does His Best Rivers Cuomo Impression in Weezer's 'Africa' Video

Weird Al Yankovic and a band of doppelgängers play Rivers Cuomo and company in a clip that recreates Weezer's 1994 "Undone (The Sweater Song)" video, blue backdrop and all. At first, the video looks innocuous enough to the untrained eye, but as it progresses Weird Al gets, well, weirder, as he begins to wiggle and gyrate as he sings. At one point he even busts out his signature accordion for a solo. By the end of the video, the keyboardist is laying on the ground and the drummer walks away from his kit, air drumming the rest of the song.
It's truly a sight to behold, and perhaps uncoincidentally was co-directed by Brendan Walter, who made his feature film directorial debut with SPELL. The movie features new music by Weezer.
