Weezer's Rivers Cuomo Terrifyingly Covers Rae Sremmurd: Watch

Weezer's Rivers Cuomo Terrifyingly Covers Rae Sremmurd: Watch

Here's the opening of Rae Sremmurd's "Come Get Her," a nicely produced, lyrically questionable song off the debut album SremmLife:

"Somebody come get her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come tip her, she's dancin' like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she's feelin' all the liquor"

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo decided to cover that song. We don't know why. And Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo decided to post a clip, above, of the cover of that song. We, again, do not know why. We would have accepted "No Flex Zone" reworked as "No Sweater Zone," but not this. Never this. 

(We also would've accepted Cuomo just linking out to this killer Kanye/Weezer mashup album, Yeezer.)
