This guy

41605_70358446004_2204126_n.jpg

He's got style parodies



And polka medlies



And parody parodies



And awesome stuff



Also he makes fun of pop songs too, that's pretty cool.

Also something about kick ass music videos that you'll have to go to YouTube and sit through 30 seconds of advertising to see.

Also he had a TV show and a movie which are largely considered by all critics everywhere to be... y'know what fuck critics.

And he probably has his own postage stamp and his face on a form of currency in a foreign country, I'm sure.

Point is, there ought to be at least ten threads worth of people professing their undying love to him every second on this forum alone.

The mods might be cross about that though so we'll start with this one. Get to professin'.

    I will never not be impressed by his hair.

    Also I enjoy his music.

    Weird Al is great. I don't think I've heard a song of his I disliked. That is quite a feat considering the raw product he works with.

    These are all correct opinions to have.

    Needs more "Everything You Know Is Wrong" in here though.

    True fact:

    Albuquerque has the same exact running time as Meatloaf's "Anything for Love"

    When I was younger, going into highschool, people use to say I look like Weird Al. Which I didn't mind, I use to listen to his music all the fucking time.

    Then I stopped. Not on purpose, it just happened. And then people started to say I look like Howard Stern I guess.

    Last Weird Al song I listened to was his parody of the Lady Googoo song. And it was awesome.

    I love Weird Al with all my heart and I cannot wait for the day when he returns to Earth to bring his followers to heaven

    but oh my god, I rewatched UHF a week ago and it was the single most horrible thing I had ever seen in my life

    Also I always loved Headline News but I think I might just love it for its brilliant use of kazoos

    dare to be stupid is my favorite song of his for obvious reasons
    but, you know what, i'm going to show how well weird al does his job. consider the devo vids NSFW, spoiler tagged for the uninterested.
    Spoiler:
    The lines to the song itself are filled with pop culture, which Devo itself satirized. there's a reason that Mark Mothersbaugh, frontman for Devo, said that Dare to be Stupid was the greatest Devo song.

    Oh man, I've probably heard the Weird Al parodies before the original songs. I heard "Smells like Nirvana" so many times before finally hearing "Smells like Teen Spirit" once I was so confused as to why there was no cow mooing or the singer gargling water.

    I kept wondering "So when does the mumbling start and words start happening?"

    So I have seen questlove hanging out with Weird Al, Stephen Colbert, and Karmin covers. He has been on an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba.

    He seems, just maybe like the coolest guy ever to have lived.

    Weird al has gotten old and it feels awkward that he is still doing the same thing.

The flue was closed, which trapped the carbon monoxide gas inside the house, suffocating them.[35] Several hours after his wife notified him of his parents' death, Yankovic went on with his concert in Mankato, Minnesota,[40] saying that "since my music had helped many of my fans through tough times, maybe it would work for me as well" and that it would "at least ... give me a break from sobbing all the time."
