The clip was filmed on set resembling the Oval Office, and shows the comedian checking the place out, reclining on a couch and rocking hard until secret service agents, one of which is played by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, forcefully remove him. Even so, there’s an explosive finale that reflects both the politically tense times we’re in and the band’s sense of humor.

“I Love the USA” is a bonus track on the deluxe version of the band’s “White Album,” which came out April 1.

Weezer tweeted on Sunday (Oct. 9) to promote the clip. Warning: Explicit language.
