Weezer Shoots 'Dope Nose' Clip

By | April 12, 2002 at 12:00 AM

Weezer shot the video for its latest single, “Dope Nose,” at Griffith Park in Los Angeles on Monday (April 8). The video was shot at night and features the band performing wearing bizarre costumes, an unorthodox drum kit, and motorcycles on display.

For the clip, the speed of the film was altered-either speeded up or slowed down-to get a sort of Benny Hill effect, according to the band’s website.

While a surprise in the video wasn’t revealed, interesting shots include “ridiculous [motorcycle] stunts [performed] at very close proximity to the band.”

The clip for “Dope Nose” will hit video music channels at the end of this month or the beginning of May. The song is Number 13 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. It’s the first single from the band’s forthcoming album Maladroit, which hits stores May 14.
