Lucu-Lucuan di Video Klip Weezer – Africa

Lagu cover by “request” yang dikabulkan oleh Weezer yang mana hasil “minta paksa” dari salah satu fansnya bernama Mary ini dirilis dalam bentuk video klip dengan konsep band lawak, diperankan oleh Weird Al Yankovic. lirik africa weezer

Siapakah itu Weird Al Yankovic? Well, editor taunya semenjak jaman Kurt Cobain masih hidup, terus di MTV ada versi komedi untuk lagu Smell Like Teen Spirit dengan judul Smell Like Nirvana, disitulah nama yang aneh muncul memparodikan himne perubahan pada saat itu.

Tapi Weird memang sejatinya bisa memainkan alat musik koq, bukan sembarangan “musisi ngawur”. Sebelum video klip ini rilis, pada bulan Agustus, pada salah satu konser Weezer, Weird digandeng untuk mengisi bagian solo keyboard dan setelahnya ikut bernyanyi hingga lagu usai.

Nah, biar makin joss kali ya, di video klip Africa, doi dijadiin modelnya lah sekalian (Weezernya kan sibuk manggung) bersama pemeran parodi lainnya di posisi masing-masing instrumen. Weird tentu saja menjadi frontman dari band ngawur di video klip tersebut 😀

Seperti apa nih jadinya? Lihat ajalah di bawah.

Tertawalah sebelum tertawa itu dilarang

Lirik Africa – Weezer (cover song, Toto)
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”

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

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

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

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

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
