"Damn, Daniel," the viral video sensation that has taken over the Internet recently, has made its way into the latest music video from California rockers Weezer. This is not surprising news, however, because Rivers Cuomo and the gang have used viral "stars" for music videos in the past (see "Pork and Beans"). In fact, the new music video for "California Kids" only features a short cameo from the "Damn, Daniel" duo, Daniel Lara and Joshua Holz.

Aside from the cameo at the end, this music video is made up of Cuomo reenacting the other music videos from the latest album's singles. "Do You Wanna Get High," "L.A. Girlz," "Thank God for Girls," and "King of the World" are the other singles. Considering this might be the final single and music video off of this record, it makes sense that it pays homage to the others.
The White Album has a release date set for April 1, 2016.
This music video ends with Rivers literally digging himself out of the sand on the beach, finding himself. After brushing off the sand and stumbling around, the "Damn, Daniel" teens pop in to close out the music video.

As were the cases with the other songs we've heard so far, "California Kids" is fun and gets back to the band's roots. It has catchy hooks with soaring guitars, making us nostalgic for Pinkerton. This new album sounds like a fan-pleasing collection of songs.
