Weezer, "Africa"

Weezer has unveiled the official music video for their cover of Toto's iconic "Africa," starring Weird Al Yankovic as Rivers Cuomo. 

"The blessings don't stop," Weezer wrote in the comments section of the YouTube video, which dropped on Monday (Sept. 24). The visual is a clear callback to the one for "Undone - The Sweater Song," Weezer's first-ever music video. Towards the end of the video, Yankovic's drummer runs around the drum set in the same way that Weezer's Patrick Wilson does in the original video. 

After a fan's persistent requests, Weezer decided to cover "Africa" back in May, which became their first hit on Billboard's Hot 100 chart after a decade. Following the song's release, Toto covered Weezer's "Hash Pipe," to return the favor.
