The first time I heard “Pork and Beans” by Weezer on the radio I was, to be honest, not completely impressed. Sure, it had a catchy melody, but it was simple, ordinary and done by them before. However, the second I saw their music video for this song I fell in love with it. What an incredible idea. The power and meaning of the song were completely re-defined by the music video in my mind, which by popular is it a hard thing to do. As noted in discussion about the textbook “Dancing in the Distraction Factory” in Dr. Strangelove’s lecture, the meaning of the song is usually reproduced by lyric and interoperated by video to some extent, and rarely does a video add anything to the original song. This was not the case, in Weezer’s music video they enhanced the song by creating a powerful meaning, using the genius idea of not hiring B rated actors to give mediocre illustration of half-hearted feelings, but by hiring average YouTube stars. The music video depicts these normal people who once discovered 15 seconds of fame online for their 10 second clips of humility or comedy as “some-bodies”. After showing my younger sister this video even she could spot the majority of the references to popular culture. “Pork and Beans” explains what Dr. Strangelove has been demonstrating through his show and tell of YouTube newscasts such as Phil Defranco, this being not only the way in which we gather our media, but where we get it from is certainly changing.
