The song's music video features Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz as a rideshare driver enduring a nightmare shift.
The clip was originally filmed for a song called "Happy Hour
," from Weezer's Pacific Daydream
album, but they gave up on the single before it even came out. Then the band decided to re-cut the visual to accompany a single called "Cardigan Disaster" but when Weezer's cover of "Africa
" started going crazy on the radio, they canned that release. Finally, when Weezer decided to release "Can't Knock the Hustle" as their first single from the Black Album
, they re-cut the video again to accompany it.
Cuomo told Billboard: "Each time we re-cut it, it seemed to fit the song even better."
