Weezer Throw A Hootenanny

Oct 22nd, 2009 // 5 Comments

Weezer’s video for the still-insanely-catchy “If You’re Wondering If I Want You To (I Want You To)” dispenses with their recent Internet obsession and drops the band into an old-timey setting—in a land populated only by dudes of various ages who, curiously, all resemble Weezer’s members to varyingly creepy degrees. But then a woman arrives, and wreaks a predicable amount of bloody havoc. There’s even a scene where somebody gets hit by a car, which I think makes the whole “vehicular injury” motif an official music-video trend? Clip after the jump.

(You guys hear a bit of “Town Called Malice” in there too, right? Yeah.)

  1. @maura: is it “Town Called Malice” or “Hitsville UK”?

  2. I hear the “Town Called Malice” in the verses, but (and this is a huge, unfortunate “but”) all I can hear when the chorus kicks in is “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”.

  3. God, what I wouldn’t give to never see another video or movie where someone suddenly gets hit by a bus again.

    Hey holy shit I’m commenting and it’s working! Woah! Thank you, Maura!
