Weezer has probably best been described as a garage band that just blew up. The LA based alt-rock band has had several hits in their career since they debuted in 1992, and their latest album, their tenth and fourth entitled “Weezer,” came out in Aril of 2016. It’s referred to as “The White Album” based on it’s cover art, and Weezer has released a music video for one of its bonus tracks.
“I Love The USA” is Weezer’s tribute to the Juno Probe that headed to Jupiter and was released alongside “Juno” by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

The music video features comedian Patton Oswalt, known for his work in his Emmy winning comedy special “Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping,” as a man who finds himself within the Oval Office, dressed up in full American flag attire, including a bandana, pants, fanny pack, socks and sandals.
The video follows Oswalt as he walks into the Oval Office and begins to play around with all the decorations and pretends to be the president, all while singing his love for America, as Weezer singer Rivers Cuomo plays a security guard.
Oswalt then begins to throw stuff around and shred guitar while red, white and blue balloons fall from the ceiling. The video ends with Oswalt contemplating pressing a big red button that says “NO!,” with Cuomo stopping him and then accidentally pressing it himself.
“I’m just trying to make America great!” shouts Oswalt, tackled on the floor, as the song ends in an explosion.
