Thankfully, video kid Nick McGlynn edited together all of the viral clips that Weezer alludes to, so you don't have to look them all up on YouTube yourself. Nostalgia 2.0!

witchbaby: The guy (I Think that's a guy) with the mascara is the "Leave Britney Alone!" video. Thank the gods I haven't actually tortured myself with watching it, but I've heard of it. lol

Did they get all the original people to be in their video? Either way, it's an awesome video. It's similar to the South Park episode where they made fun of all the viral videos.
