There are two different videos for “Island in the Sun”.

oFFICIAL ViDEO: Version 1

Version 2: Animals
This video was directed by Spike Jonze. It features Weezer playing with various wild animals on a supposedly remote hill. Only Brian Bell, Rivers Cuomo, and Pat Wilson appear in this video, as bassist Mikey Welsh had left the band shortly before shooting.
Jonze’s version was given much wider play on MTV, and as a result it became the much better-known version.

Island in the Sun” was not originally planned to be on the album, but producer Ric Ocasek fought for its inclusion.
