Weezer

In February 2019, rock band Weezer released a video for their song "High as a Kite" which features the band performing on a television set modeled after that of Mister Rogers' Neighbohrood.

As described by Billboard.com:

In the vintage-y music video, the L.A.-based band perform the upbeat tune on a kids' TV show called Mister Rivers’ Neighborhood to a studio audience full of children and their parents.

Things soon turn a bit dark as the audience pays closer attention to the lyrics behind the rock track. “I feel no pain, I feel no pleasure/ I only want to disappear/ So let me play this game for children/ And vanish into the atmosphere,” lead vocalist Rivers Cuomo sings.
