Watch Calpurnia star in Weezer music video for “Take On Me” cover
Weezer has released a super meta video for their cover of a-ha’s “Take On Me” and it stars Calpurnia.
Calpurnia, fronted by Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, takes it back to the ‘80s with this video. Wolfhard even sports a crazy mullet that was definitely popular way before his time.

The song comes from Weezer’s most recently release, The Teal Album, which is comprised solely of cover songs.
The “Take On Me” video shows the whole Calpurnia crew rocking out at a throwback jam sesh in Wolfhard’s living room. To give us even more ‘80s vibes, there are doodled animations of the band throughout. Check out the video below.
To make the whole thing even more meta, let’s not forget when Wolfhard performed “Buddy Holly” by Weezer during Lip Sync Battle with his fellow Stranger Things cast members. In case you forgot about that moment in history, you can check it out below.
