Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard stars in Weezer's video for their cover of A-Ha's 'Take On Me'
By NME Magazine
Wolfhard's band Calpurnia also feature
The single is taken from Weezer’s ‘The Teal Album’, which saw the quartet build on the success of their take on Toto’s ‘Africa’ and cover the likes of TLC and Michael Jackson.
In the new video, Wolfhard stars alongside his Calpurnia bandmates as the ’80s teenage version of Cuomo’s living-room band. The visual also pays tribute to A-Ha’s original video, with illustrated versions of the band. You can watch it unfold below.
Weezer will be heading out on tour later this year. You can see those dates below.
