No one can escape their cover of Toto’s “Africa”; recently they were the basis for one of the most niche Saturday Night Live sketches ever; they dropped a surprise album of covers; and they keep making music videos starring other famous people we really love. And with their newest record the Black Album out in stores now, they aren’t going away anytime soon. But their presence isn’t just limited to this world. Now they’ve gone virtual, which is why you can now visit (and we swear this is totally real) Weezer Island in Fortnite.
This version of the Matrix is really freaking weird. Actually it might be downright broken, because forget Fortnite‘s Weezer Island, the algorithm is just doing Mad Libs now. That’s the only way to explain how we live in a reality where this sentence makes total sense: “Weezer, The Roots, and Jimmy Fallon played a-ha’s ‘Take On Me’ with classroom instruments while dressed like A Flock of Seagulls.”
