ThrowBack Tuesdays: “Weird Al” Yankovic

July 6, 2010

You all know what time it is, time for another Throwback and due to funnies being in the lead of our previous poll had to drop something classic yet still silly to this day, a video parody and throwback all in one 😉 From none other than the GrandFather of all parodies “Weird Al” Yankovic This man is a humourous genius to be honest if he did’nt do what he does parodies probably would’nt exist to this day and they would be so not funny because he a absolute nut and we love it.

Alfred Matthew “Weird Al” Yankovic (English pronunciation: /ˈjæŋkəvɪk/;[1] born October 23, 1959) is an American singer-songwriter, music producer, actor, comedian, satirist, and a parodist. Since his first-aired song parody in 1979, he has sold more than 12 million albums—more than any other comedy act in history[2]—recorded more than 150 parody and original songs,[3][4][5] and has performed more than 1,000 live shows.[6] His works have earned him three Grammy Awards among nine nominations, four gold records, and six platinum records in the United States.

Now that you know a little more about or if you did’nt know who he was before this post, be thankful he does funny so well because with whats going on in this world today we certainly need something to laugh at to stop us from crying. “Weird Al” Yankovic paved the way for music video parodies on shows like SNL, MADtv and In living color just to name a few so checkout the video above “Amish Paradise” a parody of Coolio’s Gangstas Paradise which was part of the soundtrack for the film Dangerous Minds. hopefully nobody will consider this offensive if so we do apologize in advance, but we probably are to busy lol!

Not everybody approved of his parodies and even more strange people who were actually fans of his did’nt wont him to touch their songs, but the funny thing is once “Weird Al” Yankovic did it got even hotter on the music because you had to be somebody for all to even what to go there in first place…like the old saying goes:

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

    I love Weird Al, and this just might be my favorite parody! I remember seeing him being interviewed about making this video. It was hard to tell whether he was joking or not, but he fained nervousness at not having gotten Coolio’s permission first! 🙄

    Oh, I love this — brings back memories! What I love about Weird Al is that his parodies point out how ridiculous some pop culture can be.

    He was indeed a funny guy culturally… Everyone loved his comedy, and he had more African American viewers than others, ; )….
