Friday Follies: Weezer, Pork and Beans

By June 6, 2008Friday Follies

Weezer’s “Red” album is out, including the label-mandated pop songs and potential hits. And …yet another folly-worthy video — or as The Los Angeles Times puts it, “is a seminal homage to viral video.”

“Pork and Beans” sews together all those YouTube memes that leak down upon popular culture — Dramatic Look Gopher, the Mentos and Diet Coke eruption guys, Charlie the Unicorn, the befuddled but cute Miss South Carolina Teen USA, Daft Hands, Afro Ninja, Does it Blend…on and on. Some of these must be familiar, right?

The director, Matthew Cullen, explains it all here. And there are even outtakes.
