Weezer and Weird Al Tackle Toto's "Africa"


This whole Weezer "Africa" thing just keeps snowballing into a bigger, weirder, more entertaining thing.

First, a teenage fan started a movement, begging Weezer for months (half-jokingly) trying to get the band to cover the 1982 Toto hit. 

Then Weezer quietly released "Africa" and people went crazy. The song became Weezer's highest-charting single in a decade; the band performed it for the first time ever on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro

Toto reciprocated with a cover of "Hashpipe." 

Now, someone who appreciates irony better than most, "Weird Al" Yankovic has entered the mix.
