Weezer Release 'California Kids' Video

(Radio.com) Does a stroll down memory lane count if "memory lane" in this instance involves Weezer's past two music videos? That's exactly what happens in the band's new video for "California Kids." Frontman Rivers Cuomo makes his way through the very settings that formed Weezer's "Thank God for Girls" and "L.A. Girlz" videos.

In the opening moments, Cuomo sits down at the same table in the same cafe where the young man in "Thank God for Girls" gorged himself on cannolis. Cuomo proceeds to do the exact same thing, as the video flashes back and forth between the two scenes, throwing off an increasingly confused Cuomo, who can't tell reality apart from fantasy.

Then it's off to the beach, where Cuomo twirls with the same female bodybuilder his younger self did in "L.A. Girlz." Things reach a trippy tipping point when Cuomo begins to dig up someone who has been buried in the sand, and that someone turns out to be him sans his iconic glasses. Once the two Cuomos look each other in the eye, one disappears and the newly unburied-and rather shaken-Cuomo stumbles along the beach until he comes across the viral video hitmakers from "Damn, Daniel." Watch it here.
