List of memes referenced in Pork and Beans by Weezer

Haven’t had time to see the new Pork and Beans music video by Weezer?
It’s probably the most awesome music video ever, having an endless list of references to a bunch of the youtube/internet memes seen the last years.

Take a look below:

Well now, I just couldn’t help but create a list of the clips I spotted. As the gentleman I am, I decided to collect and share links to the videos as well so you can check it out yourself.

However, the list is by far complete. Need some help to put the last pieces together.

Please leave a comment if you’re able to find errors or have additions to make.

Need lots of help here! It’s a mixed sequence with lots of references (even to Will it blend!).
Edits:

Sneezing panda in the corner around 02:36 – 02:38
Charlie The Unicorn seen as a wallpaper in the background around 02:40 and later on
(Thanks for those mats!)

Peanut butter jelly time has several references, most notably around 02:43
Ryan vs Dorkman can be seen referenced several times, most notably around 02:46
The UFO on Haiti hoax UFO flies by around 02:37 and later on behind Miss South Carolina when
she’s referencing Will it blend at 02:54 (trying to blend maps, probably because she’s not very good at geography (thanks Kitsune Sniper!)).
All those Rubik’s Cube videos are referenced at 02:51. One of the most famous ones are 3 Year Old Solves Rubik’s Cube in 114 seconds.

When the camera is panning around 02:37-02:38 you can see a duck that resembles Donald. This is probably a reference to the banner ads talking about lowering mortgage rates, but I do not have a link yet, sorry. (Thanks a million Bizzell!)

  1. 01:51 – 01:55 Still Daft Hands reference but what about the boxes and such?
    there is another video with another song by daft punk (better stronger faster or whatever the hell its called) which has two girls with boxes on their heads.

    02:28 – 02:34 Need help with this one. Red shoes and a guy dressed as a girl. Freaky.

  2. 1:39-1:43 is K-Fed in a studio, footage from MTV news… not sure why they used it though.

  3. “02:36 – 03:05

    In the first few seconds where you see Donald and the two other guys dancing, that’s a reference to the banner ads talking about lowering mortgage rates.

  4. The South Carolina girl video mentions that teens can’t point out the US in a map… which is probably why she’s destroying the maps in the blender.

  5. Thank you so much for putting this together! I’ve been looking all over for a breakdown of this video. I thought I got most of the references but it was less than half! Much appreciated.

  6. There’s an early reference of Charlie the unicorn: 00:37 – 00:40 as a tattoo on the GI Joe chest.

    Also, the T-shirts worn in 00:46 – 00:50 and 01:56 – 01:58 contains many references to the videos shown on the Pork and Beans video, some of them as bear figures (Afro ninja, Afro ninja, Diet Pepsi and Mentos Experiment).

  7. Hi, i guess the “Donald” duck has some resemblance with the dancing baby from Ally McBeal, in fact, one of the first Internet memes in the 1998 or 1999…

  8. I remember when this came out. I could name every single meme in the song instantly… dunno if I should be proud of that…
