Weezer Pork and Beans Music Video

Los Angeles band Weezer has released their music video for “Pork and Beans”, a single from the soon-to-be-released album, Red Album. The music video parodies internet memes including the Star Wars kid, Matt McAlister’s 155 T-Shirt record, Caitlin Upton as Miss South Carolina on finding USA on a map, and the EepyBird Diet Coke and Mentos Experiments. And in case you miss it, the opening scene is shot in Funtwo‘s bedroom.

Lyrics for Pork and Beans

They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
Work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades to transform a tool
You’d hate for the kids to think that you’ve lost your cool

I’mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
I’m fine and I’m dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think

Everyone likes to dance to a happy song
With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along
Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the charts
Maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art

I’mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
I’m fine and I’m dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think

No, I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care

I’ma do the things that I wanna do
I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
I’m fine and I’m dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
I don’t give a hoot about what you think
