YouTube Literacy Test

There have been rock videos from big name bands before that use YouTube celebrities to complement the words of the song, but this is a particularly clever treatment of the genre that includes Miss South Carolina, the "Chocolate Rain" guy, the Numa Numa dance guy, the "Evolution of Dance" guy, and many others.

And besides, as someone who lived in Los Angeles all throughout her twenties during the launch of what was once a local band, I have great affection for that particular Weezer brand of disaffection.

However, some might argue that this appropriation of the appropriators is inappropriate, given that the bands' handlers in the past harassed at least one creator of a Weezer fan vid.
