Matt Damon was the guest host of this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, where he starred in a couple of holiday sketches. In one particular sketch, Damon was having Christmas dinner with his new neighbours Kenan Thompson and Leslie Jones.
As was everyone was getting to know each other, Weezer’s recent cover of Toto’s “Africa” starts playing in the background when Damon and Jones get into a heated debate about whether the band is still any good.
“I think they’re doing some cool things right now.” Damon shares his support for Weezer while also announcing their new album. Jones replies, “I’m just a little confused because real Weezer fans know they haven’t released a good album since Pinkerton in ’96. Weezer put out two perfect albums, Blue and Pinkerton, and the rest is pretty corny.”
The argument gets close to a punch-up before Damon storms out the house, quoting the band’s 2005 hit “Beverly Hills” with his exit. The band haven’t formally responded to the sketch but drummer Patrick Wilson wrote on Twitter, “Go Matt Damon!”
