Green Day know how to close out a tour in style. The veteran Bay Area trio helped wrap up the North American leg of their massive Hella Mega tour this week by pulling a classic joke on tour mates Weezer. “What’s a tour without a good ‘ol prank at the end?! Gotcha @Weezer” GD wrote in a clip posted on Tuesday night (Sept. 7).
Though it’s unclear from the video if the trio of stage intruders are, in fact Green Dayers Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt, it sure looked like the fun-loving threesome hamming it up as Weezer ripped through “Surf Wax America.” Trying to keep a straight face, Rivers Cuomo and company ripped through the song from their 1994 self-titled “Blue” album while a man in a mask wearing a very snug red speedo, black jacket, hat and shoes bashed the drums, as a mask-wearing Elvis impersonator with a fez did high kicks and someone in a horse costume shimmied on the drum riser.
