Howdy, all! The new Weezer video, "Perfect Situation", debuts tomorrow, Friday Nov 11th! It will be getting an "All Day Premiere" on Mtv2, playing more than once an hour all day long. And online, it debuts on yahoo.com! Whether you tune in or browse over or both, come check it out!

The video was shot several weeks ago in downtown L.A. with Mark Webb directing. Mark has done a lot of sharp looking videos recently, including My Chemical Romance's "Helena", and "Perfect Situation" continues his string of excellent work. "Perfect Situation" features guest star Elisha Cuthbert (seen in "24", "House Of Wax", "Old School" and more) in a rocking role, and asks more from the weezer men than just about any previous weezer video has. And they deliver!

The video will be available on Weezer.com's Media page soon, but for now check Mtv2 and yahoo.com.

The "Perfect Situation" single has gone to radio and is rising fast on the charts already - Show your support of this great song and call your local radio station to request it! And if you have already been doing this, thank you very much!
