‘Africa’ (Weezer, starring Weird Al Yankovic)

Got turned onto this.

Africa, Weezer

That’s not Weird Al singing and that’s not Weezer playing, by the way: they’re lip-syncing to the actual song.  Also: the set is derived from Weezer’s Undone – The Sweater Song, for we are deep in the land of the Meta-Joke.  As one might expect from a project that involves both Weezer, and Weird Al.

Still: not bad.

Weird Al/Weezer does life cover of Toto’s Africa.

I’m gonna just say it.

The live Weezer cover was not that great, until Weird Al showed up.  Then it became great.  I’m sorry to say that, but in your heart you know it’s true.
