The year of Toto – marking its 40th anniversary with an extensive tour – marched on last week when Weezer took the stage in Los Angeles and performed their now infamous cover of the beloved '80s classic Africa. Only they weren't along. Weird Al Yankovic joined them.

Weird Al had his accordion in tow and performed a solo late in the song and sang along while the adoring crowd probably wondered what crack in the universe made this all possible.

So if you think the '80s nostalgia movement is on its death bed – and you're stocking up on old Spin Doctors CDs – you better take time to bask in the rains of Africa. Watch the video here.
