‘Weird Al’ Yankovic Stars In Weezer’s Music Video For ‘Africa’ Cover

Weezer have finally released the music video for their cover of Toto’s “Africa” and they’ve thrown in a hilarious twist.

The video, it turns out, is a nearly perfect recreation of the band’s video for their ’90s hit “Undone – The Sweater Song”, only this time starring “Weird Al” Yankovic as the lead singer.

The gag is fitting for the cover, which was birthed after fans petitioned the band to record their own take on “Africa”. Weezer eventually gave in, releasing the single in May and giving them their first Billboard Hot 100 hit in a decade.
