Calpurnia stars in Weezer's video for 'Take On Me'
Weezer has dropped a video for its cover of “Take On Me” that features Finn Wolfhard of “Stranger Things” along with his band, Calpurnia, rocking out to the track in the 1980s.
Weezer’s recently released album of covers, “The Teal Album”, includes their renditions of songs by Michael Jackson, TLC and more, and one of the most buzzed-about tracks was their cover of a-ha’s 1985 classic “Take On Me”.
In the newly released video for their track, Wolfhard plays a young Rivers Cuomo, holed up in his childhood bedroom. He is soon joined by the other members of Calpurnia, the Vancouver-based indie band Wolfhard fronts, and the musicians go on to play the song in his living room.
Later in the clip, visual effects make reference to a-ha’s original, iconic video. JB
