One thought on “Weezer plans for internet domination with “Pork and Beans””

  1. I’m ashamed I hadn’t come across this gem sooner! Quite surprising it hasn’t been done yet actually. Quite like it though – entertaining at least. If this were a brand, the angry bloggers would be screaming rip off by now!
