Weezer is getting in the Christmas spirit by appearing in Netflix’s new film “Family Switch!” The flick is a spin on Freaky Friday starring Jennifer Garner and Ed Helms. It was released several days ago fans are flocking to see the band make a surprise cameo, performing Santa Claus Is Coming To Town with Ed Helms’ character Bill Walker’s garage band ‘Dad Or Alive.’

The band make up the remaining members of Bill’s (Helms) garage band Dad or Alive. Director McG (Joseph McGinty Nichol), revealed his motivation to include the band in the film during an interview with Netflix’s Tudum, sharing that he “grew up on Weezer”. He added: “The Blue Album blew my mind.”
“Rivers just came from a two-week silence retreat and is Harvard educated,” the director added. “He’s a terribly introspective man of few words. And I’m out there freaking out and jumping up and down and overextending my welcome at all times. We were sort of the fire and the ice, if you will. It made for a perfectly agreeable cup of water.”
