In what appears to be quite a bizarre video, Mick Fleetwood makes a cameo in the clip for Tonic's "Open Up Your Eyes" from their platinum- selling A&M debut, Lemon Parade.

The video, scripted and directed by the band themselves, features the guys roller- skating down the street and encountering lots of strange characters that apparently refer to other bands. In one shot, Fleetwood is simply walking down the street waving to the band. In another, a man opens his trenchcoat and has a bunch of Matchbox cars for sale -- perhaps a tip of the hat to Matchbox 20.

Tonic met Fleetwood when Tonic, best known for their hit "If You Could Only See," was asked to cover "Second Hand News" to the Fleetwood Mac tribute album, Legacy: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, due March 17 on Atlantic Records.
