Just when you thought “Africa-mania” was starting to fade out, Weezer releases a video for their version of the 1982 Toto classic this morning starring none other than “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Weezer released their version of the song back in May and promptly ended up scoring their first #1 single on the Billboard chart in over a decade.

Weezer’s video for “Africa” is a nearly identical shot-for-shot remake of their 1994 hit “Undone-The Sweater Song” (minus all the dogs, unfortunately) with Yankovic playing frontman Rivers Cuomo.

Watch the video below.
