New Weezer Video – “Troublemaker”

Even with a live show constantly steering toward pomp and excess, and a year full of populist projects (see: fan-collaborative songwriting projects and Hootenannys and etc.), the video for “Troublemaker” really just has to be the logical extension of it all. (It won’t be.) Rivers and gang called a bunch of =w= lovers, and an official from the Guinness Book of World Records, to the Forum in L.A. to film a video while also attempting to set records for things like Most People In A Custard Pie Fight, World’s Smallest Drum Kit (Pat Wilson), and World’s Worst L.A. Gang Member Impersonation.

The guys are having fun. I support it. Here’s a list of the records set that day:
