Clap your hands and clear your throats because that WeezerToto train is coming through yet again. Proving that this is no summer fluke, Rivers Cuomo and the gang have dropped a new music video for their chart-roaring cover, even tagging a familiar face.

Yes, that’s “Weird Al” Yankovic filling in for Cuomo; in fact, the band’s gone ahead and swapped out everyone. Directed by Brendan Walter and Jade Ehlers, it’s a snazzy performance video that’s not exactly funny, per se, but clever enough for a quick watch.
