New Weezer Video – “Kids/Pokerface”

After some fan footage of Weezer doing a dual MGMT/Lady Gaga cover became a (relatively) minor YouTube sensation, =w= had no choice but to edit together a supercut of the crowd-pleaser for official embed purposes. Rivers keeps up with the kids admirably on the band’s reverent MGMT spin/Gaga segue, and not so much with the video’s old-school overlay/background design. Haven’t decided about his sunglasses selections yet.

Nice job, Weezer. And somewhat related: In his entertaining one-man show at UCB, comedian Gabe Liedman refers to Lady Gaga as an “avant-garde tranny supernova,” which is just about my favorite phrase ever.
