Rivers Cuomo is not the obvious choice to front a mainstream dance single, let alone feature in the actual video for it. But the fact that he has makes me love him a little bit more, and almost forgive him for insisting on recording ever more disappointing Weezer albums.

This week Steve Aoki premiered the video for the pair’s new collaboration, ‘Earthquakey People’, the lead single from the electro musician’s forthcoming debut album ‘Wonderland’. Does Cuomo feature prominently in the video? Yes. Does he attempt to fit in with its flashy visuals? No. Never has a man looked more like Rivers Cuomo.
