Weezer Helm Morally Bankrupt Megachurch in ‘Thank God for Girls’ Video

Subscribe to on

Weezer’s “Thank God for Girls” lyric video focused on a dude eating cannolis in front of a painting of Jesus. While that guy makes a cameo in the proper video for the single, the plot centers on a Weezer megachurch led by Rivers Cuomo.

Cuomo convinces his devout followers to dole out their hard-earned money after persuading them with some impressive miracles — helping a woman walk without the assistance of a cane and pulling a cannoli out from behind a parishioner’s ear, for example. Behind the scenes, however, Cuomo and company are involved in activities more nefarious in nature. See for yourself in the video at the top.

“Thank God for Girls” is one of a handful of standalone singles Weezer have shared since last year’s Everything Will Be Alright in the End. The band debuted “Everybody Needs Salvation” back in April and “Do You Wanna Get High?” earlier this month.

The songs may or may not appear on a forthcoming Weezer album. The band is currently between record contracts and, for now, are exploring the creativity that comes along with that freedom. When premiering “Do You Wanna Get High?” on Beats 1, Cuomo told Zane Lowe, “We don’t have a record deal anymore, so we’re kind of on the loose and experimenting and nobody’s in charge anymore.”
