hey, remember the 90s?

17 Sep

We interrupt our regularly scheduled political self-immolation to bring you the Best Music Video of All Time Ever: Weezer’s video for “Buddy Holly.”

I bring this up because, holy crap, this is still a great video, and because it offers me the chance to make fun of stupid kids on YouTube.  The following comments are, unfortunately, real:

Yep, that’s what things were like in the olden times.  Ducktail hairdos, “the Twist”, drive-in internet cafes…

Thinking people of different races are funny is so totally racist.  Enjoying the humor of Richard Pryor is exactly like going to a Klan meeting.

Yes, M4DfingazJake, the forces of the universe have conspired to fuck with your head by putting a hit song in a video game with a lot of other hit songs.  Seriously, call Ghost Hunters.

its meant to be stereo-typical 1950s America kkk n shit
Right.  I forgot.  The olden times were all about ducktail hairdos, the Twist, drive-in internet cafes, and white power.  Also, bowling.

    That is an awesome video. Ah, the Fonz. Will anyone ever be cooler than him? I don’t think so. Although Lemonsaplenty up there might disagree with me.

    xkcd on YouTube commenters

    And I presume you noticed the username of that last commenter? I like thinking that the guitarist of Rage Against The Machine sings Weezer to his guinea pig named Ferris Bueller.

    Every now and then, my son will ask to watch our Weezer DVD, and he’ll grab his toy guitar and hand me his little drum, and we play (badly) along with the band.

    There’s still *some* hope for the youth of America, is what I’m trying to say here. Not a lot, but some.
