News: Weezer, Jupiter, American Idol, Dubai

Gawker: Weezer’s new music video features web stars like Chris Crocker, “Evolution of Dance” guy, Gary Brolsma from “Numa Numa,” and Afroninja (who it turns out is a very good stuntman except for that ). And they actually do stuff! In most meme-collecting videos, everyone just shows up; in Weezer’s each web meme character is redeemed. The Diet Coke and Mentos guys get to rock out. Afroninja shows that despite that one famous screw-up, he really can kick ass. Chris Crocker is comforted. The narrative and the sheer number of web fads make this the best of its genre.
