Weezer Video, “Pork and Beans”

The new Weezer Video, “Pork and Beans” is a giant Interweb meme fest. In order of appearance, here are the allusions and references that I caught (feel free to send in more via the comments).

1. Funtwo's bedroom guitar playing
2. Numa Numa Dance Guy (Gary Brolsma)
3. Dramatic Look chipmunk
4. Afro Ninja
5. The Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments
6. GI Joe Spoof PSAs with a drawn in Guy Catches Glasses with Face
7. 155 shirts at once guy (Matt McAllister)
8. Chris Crocker from Leave Britney Alone!
9. All your base are belong to us (arguably the grand-daddy of Internet memes)
10. Ms. South Carolina (Lauren Caitlin Upton) wielding the Star Wars Kid's light saber
11. Evolution of Dance
12. Tay Zonday
13. Popozão douche video by K-Fed
14. Daft Hands, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
15. Daft Punk Harder Bodies Faster Stronger
16. Kelly from Shoes
17. All hell breaks loose: Dancing CGIs, peanut butter jelly time banana, will it blend?, Charlie the Unicorn

Overall, it was a fun way to celebrate the Interwebs. The only thing that would have made this video better would have been adding Star Wars Kid (Ghyslain). Too bad he hates his Internet icon status and won't have any of it. I guess getting an iPod from meme propeller Andy Baio way back in the summer of 2003 was no consolation. Great job, Interwebs.(From Buzzfeed)
