Video from Weezer: Pork and Beans (NOTE: click image to play in new window)
Mike Houghton emailed this video to me recently. Seeing it spurred some thoughts on how Weezer took a simple idea and created something from it. In this case Weezer has taken a simple thought – “I’m going to do what I want to do, I ain’t gotta prove a thing to you” – and made a catchy little song with an amusing, light video.
I’ve been interested for a while now in how others take a simple idea and make it spring to life. I’m sure that we all have inspirational moments where if we could just somehow “catch” them and “own” them, maybe something worthwhile (or at least thought provoking) could come from them.
