To be fair looking at these two pictures it is hard to tell which one is truly weird, but only one uses the description in his name. Weird Al Yankovic has release his latest parody song based on Gaga's single, Born this way. It would appear that for a time the song was being blocked by her agent (Al's Gaga Parody Blog) but now it has been given the thumbs up. Most artist accept being parodied by Al as a mark of having "made it"
There is no image to go with the song as yet, but Al's YouTube channel has the music with lyrics available..
I have always liked a bit of Weird Al, Michael Jacksons 'Bad' vs Al's 'Fat' is up there, but I think my favourite is his mickey take of Coolio's 'Gangsta's Paradise'... 'Amish Paradise' This is a very clever video in that it actually takes from many sources, references to Harrison Fords Witness being one.
Things to look out for:
Up at 4:30 milking cows, but only into his breakfast bowl !
Look what he is feeding the chickens .. Pizza !
Tonight we're going to party like its 1699, Prince has never allowed him to Parody one of his records.
When he looks at the sundial watch the guy behind is playing golf but follows through with a scythe
The newspaper is Lancaster PA, a reference to Witness
In the Barn raising scene, when the wall falls over him, this is a reference to Buster Keaton one of Al's Hero's
There are lots of others and it really does deserve a close watch to catch it all, with nearly 7million views you wont be the first !
So as we close on W for Weird Al there are only 3 letters left and the A-Z challenge will be over..
