Many of us are familiar with the “gig economy,” and it appears to be the inspiration behind the hilarious video for Weezer’s new song “Can’t Knock The Hustle.”

Starring Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz as an unfortunate rideshare driver, the video is basically a step-by-step account of potentially the worst passengers the world has ever seen.  There some NSFW imagery and language ahead, so consider yourself warned.

“Can’t Knock The Hustle” is also the first song preview from Weezer’s new LP The Black Album, which is due out at some point in 2019.  Fortunately, fans can stream/download “Can’t Knock The Hustle” here in the meantime.
