Remember when Weezer took us to the set of “Happy Days” for “Buddy Holly” in 1994? The pop-rock group takes us back to the past again, to yet another fictional set, Weezerville, for the music video for “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.”
Imagine a little 1950’s town bursting with nothing but Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Scott Shiner, Patrick Wilson and their clones, young and old. Their picturesque world gets shaken up by a stranger, a lovely lady, the Wendy Peffercorn of this “Sandlot.” She callously breaks the hearts (and limbs and capillaries) of all but Cuomo, who is left to consider the damages she’s done to his buddies.
It could be an argument for bros before hos. And the continuing power of The Sundress.
It’s yet another fabulous and funny video from Weezer, who is busily promoting forthcoming album “Raditude,” out Nov. 3.
