Framed

Weezer, Framed, Again

Framed

Hello, readers, and welcome to Framed, where we have quite a treat for you! Last week, we featured the video for Weezer's great "Island in the Sun," and--this week--we're featuring the video for Weezer's great "Island In The Sun."

Huh? What's the deal? Has Framed flipped out?

Not at all! There were actually two videos for the song. Last week, we brought you the second, better-known version, and this week we're presenting the original, so-called "Hispanic Wedding" video.

You're probably wondering why they made two videos for this song. We think it's because the first one--this week's video--just wasn't very good! Wikipedia tells us that "the executives at MTV disliked the (Hispanic Wedding) video, prompting the band to film a second."

Happily, the second one was better, we guess, and the song was a modest hit. But let's go back and enjoy the original version of "Island In The Sun." It has nothing to do with the other version, or even the song's lyrics, so it's a lot like our typical captions. Anyway, please let us know: is this week's video that much worse than last week's? And should all musicians be forced to make back-up videos, just in case?
