I rarely find him laugh-out-loud funny, but most of his stuff is amusing and has a surprising level of replay value, probably because there's so little else I find that's just fun to listen to.

Yeah. It's weird how most songs get dated, but his parodies of them don't.
Weird Al is the king.

My sentiments exactly. He's not gut-busting hilarious but his songs always bring a smile to my face.

Also, unlike most 'joke' musicians he has a great understanding of music and a bit of talent (more than most).

Heh, pretty cool. I've always been a fan of Weird al's work. It's a nice alternative to all the Gangster Rap, emotional chick music (Paris Hilton... <_<, and morbid and opressing music you usually hear on the radio today.

He cut his long hair for this. :C

He cut his hair like 5 years ago at least.

anyone ever heard of a bloody wig? I mean, his hair in the video's straight, Al's hair is curly in real life.

I just saw a recent interview before this and he still had hair down to about his waist. Because it’s curly they kind of looked like gross dreads.

Anyone ever heard of electric hair straighteners?

I read a while ago that when he changes his hair for a video, he doesn't get rid of it. He flattens it with some sort of goopy substance, packs it onto his skull, and then puts on the necessary wig.

I couldn't see him wanting to cut five years worth of hair to do a video.

Heh, this talk about hair lengths reminds me of Maynard James Keenan's wig. When I first heard the APC album I noticed he had long hair even though I remembered him having a shaved head when he was in Tool. Then I saw them in concert and sure enough, he had hair down to his ass. I was like "guess he just grew it out". Then Tool came out with a new album and I saw them in concert and he had a shaved head again and I though "well I guess he shaved it again". Then a couple years after that I saw APC in concert again and he had long hair again. I was like "wtf, he grew that hair out pretty fast. Then later on at that show Audioslave came on stage and Chris Cornell sung a duet with Maynard who was suddenly bald again. It wasn't until this moment that I realised it was a stupid wig all along.

Sometimes I can be a little slow.
