Weezer Impersonate Guns N’ Roses in ‘Feels Like Summer’ Video
Weezer are always up for working in humor into their music and presentation. Today the group released a new video for "Feels Like Summer," as the "(Roses N' Weezer Version) to celebrate their recent tour.
Too often, live music videos can be kind of boring, just showing the band playing the track and that being pretty much it. But Weezer mess up the formula to hilarious results by dressing up as Guns N' Roses for the video. And it's not just for the video in some kind of rehearsed live setting, it's actually in front of a huge crowd of fans. Attendees of the crowd confusingly stare up at the group while they riff the extremely catchy and goofy new single, as if it actually is Axl, Slash and the rest of the gang up there.
Earlier this year, the group delivered a different version of a "Feels Like Summer" video, with Rivers Cuomo and the rest of the band phasing in and out of an illustrated headtrip. It proved to be a pretty popular video, and the single earned them a slot on the late night program Jimmy Kimmel Live where Rivers Cuomo came out dressed like a big sun.
If there's anything to be learned from the video, it's that you should never expect the band to go by what's considered normal for bands. Hell, remember last year when Weezer offerred a $25,000 pre-order package that included a bird-watching sesh with Rivers? You'll never know what you're going to get.
