Rivers Cuomo Has Crazy Deja Vu in Weezer’s Self-Referential ‘California Kids’ Video
With just a few more weeks between us and Weezer's 'White Album,' the band have unveiled a patently Weezer-esque video for "California Kids." Watch it above.
Directed by SCANTRON and Jade Ehlers, the clip follows frontman Rivers Cuomo as he reenacts scenes from the other three videos already released from the album, slated for release April 1. You don't have to look too close to see the references to “Thank God For Girls,” “King Of The World” and “L.A. Girlz.” Oh, and the guys from that Damn, Daniel video show up for good measure.
If "California Kids" sounds vaguely familiar, it's actually a new version of “California” – a song from Cuomo's Japanese-language side project with Scott Murphy from 2013.
