Weezer I Love the USA: Patton Oswald lip-syncs in new music video
Weezer and Patton Oswalt make an unlikely (but nonetheless satisfying) team in the new music video for the rock band’s latest single “I Love the U.S.A.”
“We are Weezer, and we approve this message,” the band tweeted on Sunday afternoon, linking to the new clip. “Watch the new video for ‘I Love The USA’ starring @pattonoswalt.”
The four-minute clip sees the Emmy-winning actor decked out in patriotic garb, including red shades, a star-spangled bandana, and a U.S.A. fanny pack, as he makes his way around a mock version of the Oval Office.
Throughout the clip, Oswalt mouths the lyrics to the band’s “I Love the U.S.A.,” which was released in July as a non-album track honoring Juno, a Jupiter-bound spacecraft sent into orbit by NASA. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo also makes an appearance in the video as a member of the Secret Service.
Weezer released a second eponymous album – their tenth studio effort since launching in 1994 with Weezer – in April. The collection debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and produced the singles “Thank God for Girls,” “Do You Wanna Get High?” and “Kind of the World.”
