Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

Weezer’s Pork and Beans (and other Links)

Written by

As a subscriber of pop music band's Weezer's newsletter, I occasionally get an e-mail about news that is going on in Weezerland. They don't send too many e-mails out, probably only one every six months or so. When they come, they are genuinely a good read. So when I got one this Friday, I had to check it out. They put their new upcoming song and video on YouTube. Imagine giving away your product for free... people who do that must be crazy...

The video was one of the best I've seen in some time. When I first saw it only around 200,000 people have seen it, but now it's nearing 3 million... Have a look:

If you don't recognize some of the famous faces reprising their roles, you need to spend more time on YouTube. Or you can read ValleyWag's behind the video. It's amazing to me that they got all the celebrities together lipsyncing the song. Good marketing guys... not to the links...

    Weezer is the best.

    I really like this too, I think it’s pretty awesome for the Youtube regulars to get in music videos, it seems like at least half of them from Weezer’s video have already been in the Barenaked ladies “sound of your voice” video.

    “Hash Pipe” is one of the all-time blow-out songs in my MP3 collection. I always laugh when I think that the same group wrote Hash Pipe and “Island in the Sun”…
