Weezer have released the video for their chart-topping new single 'Pork And Beans'.
The video features a host of YouTube stars including Tay Zonday of 'Chocolate Rain' fame, Miss South Carolina, and Chris Crocker -- the platinum blond guy who cries to leave Britney Spears alone.
Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline also makes an appearance rocking out behind a mixing board.
"It's an homage and a spoof and a mash-up of YouTube phenomenon videos," guitarist Brian Bell told NME.COM when the band were recording it in Los Angeles two weeks ago.
The video, which was directed by Mathew Cullen (REM, Beck, Modest Mouse) can be seen now on Weezer's YouTube channel.
The channel also features behind-the-scenes clips from the making of the video and an introduction from the band.
Weezer's new self-titled album, also known as the 'Red Album', is due out in the US on June 3 and in the UK on June 16.
