Weird Al's 1 of 8
I'm not sure if there are any other Weird Al fans out there but today is the launch of his first of 8 music videos in 8 days for his new album! I'm excited.

Nice.

A few questions (I'm assuming that you are an expert in these matters):

Is it a parody of another song?
Are the lip-synchers people we are supposed to know / identify with?
Is there a version with subtitles (for the hard of thinking)?

Cheers.

Its a parody of the song Happy by Pharrell





As you can see. Its an improvement. Lol

Yes they are celebrities, however I only recognise a couple of them (honestly I would have just prefered it to be just Al)

As for lyrics not that I've seen. The video just came out today so it will probably be a few hours before someone has the lyrics all down and/or posted.

I dunno, that was pretty jolly. I've heard worse.

Thanks though. The Al one makes more sense now Thumbsup

I love Al - many don't realize he has very successfully paid the bills scoring films and handling the production work for other musicians. Al is quite an underrated musician and composer.

One of my favorites will always be Amish Paradise - the video is soo hilarious!
