Recently Weezer released the video for their new song, "Pork and Beans."
I like it. I like it a lot.
I enjoy it because 1. It's a catchy and fun song and 2. It showcases numerous references to internet videos that have been popular for the past couple of years.
Here it is, in it's entirety:
So, here's my point (aside from showing off a great song with a really cool music video), I enjoy funny/entertaining internet videos and always try to keep up with the latest and most popular ones. However, there are some in this music video that I don't know. I was hoping that you out there in Internetland could help me get some of the other inside jokes. These are the ones that I recognize in the order they first appear:
1. The Numa Numa kid
2. Drama Prairie Dog
3. Diet Coke + Mentos
4. G.I. Joe PSAs
5. Guiness World Record for most T-Shirts worn at one time
6. Chris Crocker (LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!)
7. All Your Base are Belong to Us
8. Miss South Carolina
9. Chocolate Rain
10. Shoes (WARNING: Contains strong language after 1:26)
11. Peanut Butter Jelly Time
12. Will it Blend? (one of MANY!)
13. Charlie the Unicorn
There are also various lightsaber moments that could refer to the various incarnations of the Star Wars Kid or other fan videos with lightsabers.
So, what did I miss? I know that I don't know who that karate guy is, or the rainbow socks girl, or the dancing guy. If you know who these people are, as well as any others I have missed, please let me know so that I can be better informed and up-to-date on the funny and entertaining You Tube videos out there.
In addition, you'll get to sound smart, which is always a plus.
