How do you prop up interest in an album that no one really cared about? If you’re Weezer, you stage a comedy contest, which will allow the winner to appear in the forthcoming video for the title track of Raditude. An unenthusiastic Rivers Cuomo introduces the idea in the clip above.
Interested participants simply have to go to this website and enter a link to the funniest music video of 2009. The creator of the music video that wins the contest will be flown to Los Angeles, and the deadline for entries in Jan. 27. The judges will then whittle entrants down to 12 finalists, and a vote will determine the winner.
