SteveEdwardCooper : Decades ago, I fell asleep on the couch one night with the TV on. Woke up at three AM, watched this video, wondered what the Hell I was looking at, fell back asleep. I spent the next few months, in the pre-internet era, trying to find this again. No one knew what I was talking about and some thought I had dreamt it. Finally I saw it a second time and found out the name of the band. It was such a relief to not only figure out who they were, but to buy the album and play this for my friends so they wouldn't think I had pulled the whole thing from a weird dream.

camflex66 : Poor guy can't get his bass started.

Brad The DC Universe Geek : I love the awkward ending of this video. Just standing there. This video was pure nineties alt-rock hipster gold.

mrhicks957 : Weezer is a cake... And Matt sharp is the flour. Weezer without Matt sharp is not weezer. Matt sharp without Weezer is just a little bland.

Neville6000 : They look like your typical Soviet rock band...

RedYellow Blue : those are some yummy chicks

Sean Doyle : You can remove the vocals and replace them with different Weezer songs and it fits beautifully... And yes I know who the members are in this band because I'm old and dying.

CrandMackerel : Fun fact: After this, Russell Crowe went on to have a high profile career as an actor.

Big Wipeouts : I just love the sound of that Moog.

laterite : these chicks are aubrey plaza's spirit animals.

Zen Jon : Ahhh...sneaking MTV and sugar cereal at 11:30 at night in 5th grade...

superrok420 : Soooo this is what my friends and I looked like playing Rock Band.

StillAtMyMoms : That moment when you realize hipsters lived in the 90s. If only they continued to sound like this, though. Killer track.

Jason Peter's : ahhh, 1995. Before being a hipster was pretentious

MosriteFlyinFingers : I get a strong Pixies vibe from this.

Mr Gee : I can't love the awkward silence at the end enough. :)

superrok420 : Back in the 90s I was a teenager and was attracted to what I thought were weird looking chicks. Not really ugly or pretty kinda in between. Now basically I digged hipster chicks. It wasn't just the look, it was their attitude. They were funny for the most part with a dry sense of humor. Soooo my point is when I first saw this video I wanted to have a three some with them chicks...The End!

FantometteBR : Hipster at 90s >>> Hipsters of today

Pacific Rain : For the guys who say Matt Sharp's departure messed up Weezer, it's not that incident that almost destroyed Weezer. It's the failure of Pinkerton. The failure of Pinkerton made Rivers Cuomo think the critics want to make him write generic pop songs. If Pinkerton did well, there will be no hiatus, more Pinkerton and Blue sounding albums instead of generic pop albums.

Brendan Black : Maya Rudolph was in this band.

Gabe Suarez : Oh. This is where the good weezer sound went. Matt Sharp really IS the key to Weezer sounding as fucking amazing as they had... I thought when people were saying that, they were exaggerating and that this band just had some of the spirit. Its got 85% of the ingredients for god sake.

patrick's broken glute : it wasn't Matt who caused weezer's change. it was Rivers' fault. Matt wanted to be something other than "just the bass player", and the band was slowing down at the time, so he probably didn't have much incentive to stay. Rivers regretted making the raw album, so he made the exact opposite.

Sebastian Avila : why are those girl's nerdy look turning me on...

FMichael1970 : 92 people aren't friends of P.

Sentrydown : Why everyone is saying Matt Sharp was the reason Weezer was good, like if you were completely ignoring the existence of Maladroit, EWBAITE and White.

Melanie Brandt : This is the whitest thing I like.

Max Legate : How are people saying this is a ripoff of Weezer since Matt Sharp was in Weezer

mikeywolves1 : Matt Sharp was still in Weezer when he formed the Rentals and released his album. He was in Weezer for three more years and made Pinkerton a while after this was made. Learn your chronological history before making your half baked critiques.

_Texas_Pete_ Beats_The_Meat_ : Is it just me, or has "Daria" gone hyper realistic...

B. Henderson : By far the most talented member of Weezer.

Elphyrafire : so glad this song lives on via youtube

Ma Ab : 1990s alt-powerpop jewel. I miss things like these, I miss the 90s <3

Rockett Launch : Had to watch a 30 second ad to see this. First world peoblems

Austin Lucas : Lyrics: "I'm a good guy for a gal, So won't you look my palm over? I've got time for a chat, So won't you tell me my future? I'm gonna break down at fifty, And I'm not quite a stallion. I'm a good guy for a gal, And I'm mentally slipping. Oh yeah, oh yeah. What's that ya' see? Oh boy, find out what's up with me. Oh yeah, oh yeah. What's that ya' see? Tell me more of what's gonna be. If you're friends with P., Well, then you're friends with me. If you're down with P., Well, then you're down with me. Friends of P. Friends of P. Friends of P. Friends... Somebody's fame and fortune is gonna come to me early. I get two loves in my life, and I'm dying at ninety."

NameNotAlreadyTaken2 : Goddamn, I haven't heard this song since on the radio way back in the 90s!

madmadameminx : Proto-Hipsters?

danielscissorhands : Donald Trump is friends with Pee

Romeo Alpha : Always wondered what was up with the Russian subtitles...

JisINSANE3 : I love the early 1960's school text book music class look this video has.

Ethan Storms : Get guitar lessons from this dude ahahahaha this video. Still old but Gold

bandi53 : So that's where hipsters came from... At least these hipsters have good music.

Eric Austin : The original Hipster!!!!!

Michael Tapp : Holy shit, this song has been stuck in my head for WEEKS. Thank you for the relief!

Gus OɴDemaɴd : that blond chick is on overhaulin'..

kung Few : I got to see the original Weezer lineup front row standing room only at the metro in Chicago when they released Pinkerton. They played every song off both albums and were awesome! I yelled out as loud as I could HEY SHARP! He looked at me and I screamed RENTALS! While giving him the rock hand symbol, he smiled at me and nodded to me thanks brother. Best concert of my life bar none and It sucks Sharp left, but Rivers is still awesome and I loved the green album.

Mikey Gray : First weezer album is what made them. So yeah the later weezer crap would not have made it if it weren't for Matt sharps contributions..

Robert Merritt : I hope this is played at Donald Trump's inauguration

Michael Andrew Pamintuan : He is the reason weezer could not get a hit again and just doing covers

Hector Hidalgo : i prefer the weezer versión

Trudeau Must Go : The 90s was a weird time. You had to be there. We didn't really get it then and we don't get it now but it was special.
