“Weird Al” Yankovic is America’s favorite musical parodist. His latest album is titled Mandatory Fun and it features such songs as “Tacky,” which is a parody of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy,” and “Word Crimes,” a send-up of both Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and poor grammar.

But, if you’re a fan of “Weird Al,” you don’t only like the songs. You like the videos, too. So, in honor of all that, here are the top ten “Weird Al” music videos.

Pretty much *any* Al video is an act of genius, although I have a special fondness for "I Lost On Jeopardy".

"Don't Download This Song" makes a great political statement

Alex Trebec, "Don Pardo, tell him what he's won!"
"You have won absolutely nothing! You're a complete loser! You don't even get the Jeopardy home game!"

Perfect.

I'd have had the video for the theme for UHF. He manages to pretty much slaughter the entire genre of eighties music in that one alone.

As good as "Fat" was, "Eat It" is king and it didn't even make the list, except as honorable mention.

The beauty of eat it is the parody lyrics fit the song perfectly. It's note-perfect with the original.

Even the guitar solo was a PERFECT parody of the one in the original.

Weird Al also managed to snag many of the same actors that appeared in Jackson's original video.

We were having lunch in the Roosevelt Tavern in 1988 when Al's "Fat" came on the TV. Lunch took 15 extra minutes for the laughing that day ... good times ...

A great diversion for Sunday, my sons were always talking about Weird Al, and now I know why. LOL

I always think better of musical artists when they respond positively to a Weird Al parody of their song.

He always gets permission first. The only artist to seriously turn him down was Prince. And whatever Coolio's malfunction is.

Great post. I had the opportunity to see Al in person once - awsome! He's had an important and long-lasting effect on humor and pop culture.
