You saw the video, but here's some of what went down during Weezer's music video shoot of their song "Troublemaker," as seen through the eyes of LAist photographers Tom Andrews and Michael Zampelli. Many world records were attempted, but not all were successful like the longest guitar cable used in a music video. However, they did earn five world records: Largest Air Guitar Ensemble (consisting of 233 participants), Largest Game of Dodgeball (consisting of two teams of 50), Longest Guitar Hero World Tour Marathon (lasting 10 hours 12 minutes and 54 seconds), Most People in a Custard Pie Fight (consisting of 120 people) and Most People Riding on a Skateboard (22 people managed to ride on the skateboard).
