Weezer and Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino may have made their collaborative track "Go Away" sound like easy and fun alt-rock, but in the music video getting the two together took a lot of effort. Today (July 24) the latest visual from Weezer's new album Everything Will Be Alright in the End was released, and it features an on-the-nose spoof of the popular dating app Tinder.
In "Go Away," Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo wants nothing more than to win the heart of Cosentino via virtual communication, and he's going to try each and every sort of stereotypical persona until he gets there. With the help of his bandmates, Cuomo snaps shots as a punk dude, busy businessman, frat guy, coffee shop hipster (who buys the very cool Weezer blue album) and surfer to upload to "Winder" (Tinder with the Weezer =w=), though his attempts are to no avail.
It takes an IRL scheme involving a purse snatcher, a perfectly timed acting moment and probably some mild stalking until Cuomo finally wins the girl. Or, you know, at least he wins a hug. And isn't that all that one really needs at the end of the day?
"Go Away" is the fourth official single from Weezer's new album Everything Will be Alright in the End, which was released in fall of last year. It follows the release of "Back to the Shack," "Cleopatra" and "Da Vinci."
