Short version: WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY is like finding a diamond in a dung heap.

Tweet of the Year, @alyankovic Should Have Charged Money For This edition.
You should feel honored to see a master at work.
Oh no, they suspended @danielradcliffe's Twitter account! Wasn't it obvious he was doing a PARODY???

I’ll assume you already knew that Elon Musk has been throwing out people who pretend to be someone else; and that he’s been ignoring the Holy Blue-Check when doing it. What you may not know is that Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t use social media. Which is something Weird Al knows perfectly well, unlike all the people who immediately started freaking out about this*. Perfect timing, perfect execution, and the ultimate targets of the joke were the ones who went off half-cocked over something they saw on the Internet.
…God, that is beautiful. It’s inspiring, even. We should all take a moment.
*I must also gently note that the aforementioned mass freak-outs are excellent evidence for why Twitter should have a strict policy against having impersonation accounts.
I need to sit down and watch WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY.
I want to, but it’s been a busy week and I’m kind of behind as it is. You can catch WEIRD here.
MP3 drop: “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (Original Soundtrack).”
The Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (Original Soundtrack) comes with new versions of some of the classic songs used in the film. Or the CD and vinyl come out next year, if you’d rather wait. I did not.
‘Scarif Beach Party.’
‘Dare to Be Stupid.’
The original won’t embed, so watch this. Poor dude went in cold.
‘The Alternative Polka.’
Weird Al’s polkas are so incredibly useful.
Didn’t load the first time.
The WEIRD Trailer.
If you don’t know who I’m talking about, then… okay, fine, it’s a Weird Al Yankovic biopic starring Daniel Radcliffe, and which looks to be taking numerous but hysterical liberties with the historical record. I mean, seriously. The man is almost embarrassingly clean-cut.
I’m totally going to watch WEIRD, of course. I’m the target demographic! …And some of you folks too, I guess.
