TheGunCollective : Hit it if Weird Al was a part of your childhood.

Vintage Feels : You can't shred on an accordion. Weird Al: Hold my milk.

Andrew Ender Frost : That high kick was done by a sixty year old man. Timeless

Rotarrin : Weird Al. Performing a cover of Africa. With Weezer. I can die now.

Curt Dare : "He who tired of Weird Al is tired of life" Homer Simpson

ReplayStation : Weird Al is a national treasure and we must protect him.

N P : That damn kick at 2:15 isn't getting the respect it deserves!!!

Evil Greg : As far as projects featuring Weird Al go, this is like... the least weird, and that somehow makes it more weird. How? I-dunno...

killbillvol69 : This video would have been dynamite if they got Weird Al to dress up as all four band members, not just Rivers. You know, use some special effects/split-screen type stuff. Every time the camera pans to another person, it's Weird Al in a different costume. I need to sell my ideas. hehe.

Will Sikes : I was preparing to laugh at a classic Weird Al mockery of a song but instead was blown away by great remake! So many times a group or artist botches the original but was surprised with this, good job Weezer/Weird Al

Bayardo A Rugama : Did they really name a whole continent after this song?

mike : Weird Al Yankovic as Clark Kent with weezer covering toto's Africa...best thing ever?

bvansenu : He is 30 years older than me and yet moves like he's a teenager.

Sepiso LaTanya-Marie Ililonga : I'm from Zambia. ThanXxX for the remake. Not better than Toto. Not worse than the original. Just a different sound and pretty damn awesome.

Haunt : If the earth is ever invaded by super intelligent aliens who request proof of humanities contributions to better the universe or to be destroyed, we really do only have one shot at survival. And that one shot is Weird Al

schmoyoho : what if this is a Berenstein / Berenstain situation and Weezer was really just Weird Al's side project this whole time?!?! 😱😱😱

Michael Antkowiak : By far the sexiest accordion solo ever made

Michel : Just a reminder in addition to being very, very funny Weird Al is one of the greatest musicians of our epoch.

TrueExodus7 : The fact that Al is 59 years old and can move around flawlessly and kick that high is absolutely mind blowing. He doesn't even look like he's in his 40's!

optimisticcosmic : Weird Al teaches me to not take myself too seriously.

KnockoutWolf : For a second, I was really confused why Rivers looked so different

chainsawunicorn : Weird Al's bones are actually comprised of jell-o

Jim Kiernan : Weird Al as Rivers Cuomo is the spitting image of Christopher Reeves as Clark Kent

Hoolio Iglesias : Why does Weird Al look like Christopher Reeves when he was Clark Kent?

DavidTwo2009 : Wow. Weird Al sporting the White N' Nerdy look!

FUNKe : This video is definitive proof of The Mandela Effect

Christi Meyer : When Weird Al is weirdly sexy...oh come on, you're all thinking it too.

FandomTrash93 : When memes collide

Kuldeep Jaiswal : [Verse 1] I hear the drums echoing tonight But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation She's coming in, 12:30 flight The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation I stopped an old man along the way Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you" [Chorus] It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have [Verse 2] The wild dogs cry out in the night As they grow restless longing for some solitary company I know that I must do what's right As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti I seek to cure what's deep inside Frightened of this thing that I've become [Chorus] It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have [Instrumental] [Bridge] Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you [Chorus] It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa I bless the rains down in Africa Gonna take some time to do the things we never have Thank me lateR XDXD

we3fh1b41wr6e5b4r65t : If we could just see more real Americans like AL on TV etc and less of the politicians and selfish people the rest of the world would like the USA lots more. Ban politics, play more Al.

RWCRSARRC : Weird Al = LEGEND he hasn't lost a step

puddyski : Weird Al is just one of those ppl who you love forever

Zeepsterd : Man, I love the Sweater song.

Cole Tanner : We love him because he's so friendly and respectful to strangers. We aren't used to famous people treating people kind..That why I love Al..He's super talented and super friendly. By the way..I just realized Al is dressed like that as a 24 year throwback to Weezers Buddy Holly video.

Tone Loke : Weird Al makes everything better, much better

Andrew Whitney : This video is brilliant because is a parody of the undone sweater song with Weird Al Yankovic dress Like Buddy Holly. Buddy Holly was a hit for Weezer.

Hsepirn : “I don’t wanna be an old man anymore, its been a year or two since I was blessing the rains down in Africa”

TheZaius : Man, no one moves like Weird Al. At least, not by choice...

Michigan Soul : In my opinion this is better than the original one!!

Coko Whit : This is easily my fave song this year...ok maybe in several years. The video is fabulous

Brownbear042 : Weird Al is a very wiggly man.

Hutch Peraza : I believe Weird Al didn’t have to buy his star on the Hollywood walk of fame. His fans pay for it.

HauntHunter : The thing no one ever asked for but always needed.

Kenneth Cochran : Weird Al is one the greatest examples of human flesh to exist on this mud ball called planet Earth. Treasure this brother while he's still around.

Syl141 : Didn't know Clark Kent was in a rock band.

Thomas Tallent : Weird  Al is  the Penultimate  Being
