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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

LosRioDelMar : back when MTV actually music videos and non of this crap now

Brendan Black : Maya Rudolph was in this band.

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

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

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.

MosriteFlyinFingers : I get a strong Pixies vibe from this.

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!

xanfus : Friends of P? Or should we call them by their true name?! The Dreaded Guild of Golden Shower Enthusiasts!

menswear2112 : My college years, buying cds instead of studying. So worth it, it was a great time for geek rock

Rob Younghans : Maybe the best CD in the 1990s I almost bought.

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

charliebe28 : I SEARCHED-THROUGH OVER 100 COMMENTS HERE, and I was surprised that no-one mentioned watching this video back circa 1995 on the MTV show "120 Minutes". If-memory-serves-me-correctly, this song and video did not have an very wide appeal, so its airings on "120 Minutes" were probably one of the prime ways that people would have seen it.

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

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

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

Hector Hidalgo : i prefer the weezer versión

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

madmadameminx : Proto-Hipsters?

Jeremiah buckel : I wonder if Matt Sharp kicks himself for leaving Weezer considering how far Weezer has gone. I never realized that Patrick Wilson (also of Weezer) is playing drums.

unqtious : This is the most hipster video ever.

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.

Ben Aqua : *almost 25 years later and this still slaps like it's day one*

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.

RedYellow Blue : those are some yummy chicks

spartan876 : Guy was doing the 2000s waaaaay before the 2000s

Stephanie Crawford : I remember making music videos at sleepovers to Return of the Rentals, really fun times. :) Also, Matt has always reminded me of Joel from MST3K.

Uncle Tony : A long time ago, I worked with a person who had a sex change (male to female), and in that transition she gave herself a new name, which I won't mention, but was hard to pronounce and began with the letter P. Later on we hired a black lady who just had the darndest time trying to enunciate her name, until finally she gave up and said, "I'm just gonna call you P," to which P...replied, "uhhh, yeah, I'd rather you not do that." Anyhoos, a couple of years later this song came out, and whenever I hear it (which is pretty much never anymore) I always imagine (to amuse myself) that the song was about my transgendered co-worker. Not a real knee slapper, but still makes me chuckle a time or two.

Eric Austin : The original Hipster!!!!!

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..

D.D. Acely : One of the most underrated songs in rock'n roll history. I say the most underrated is Rocket 88.

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

Ben Doane : Yep, Matt Sharp should have stayed in Weezer.

Ronald Ward : In New Zealand Crystal meth is called P. They must jam this crappy 90's song
