ScrewAttack Meets "Weird Al" Yankovic
We talk music, children's books, UHF, and more with the frazzled-haired fanatic. Also, everyone who watches this video gets a handshake from Weird Al himself!
Hey Craig / Brad. Do you have a favorite Weird Al original? Mine HAS to be: The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota
Those are Craig 2 and Craig 3, The original Craig is the one with the hat... don't you know anything?
Who's that guy that looks like Craig? He looks like Craig. That is to say the other guy interviewing Al looks like Craig but he's not Craig. What's going on with that?
Haha, I hope that part at the end is the intro to all ScrewAttack videos from now on. :)
That other guys is Craig's brother
That other guy looks allot like Craig. A question I would ask is "have you ever watched any anime?". I'm pretty sure he would say no but it would be interesting if he did.
Bob is a style parody of Bob Dylan and every line in the song is a palindrome, as is the title. It is one of my favorite songs as it is very clever and the video for it is simple but effective. If you are just listening to the song, it sounds like a bunch of random lyrics. But when you think about what it takes to make every line into a working palindrome, it creates an appreciation for the song writing.
I would ask him two questions 1. how does he come up with such great ideas for his music? 2. what was the purpose of the song "Bob"
love his music funny guy also good interview
i only saw the UHF film a few years ago.. it was awesome. so what people didn't like it when it first time out.. sometimes it takes longer for people to recognize the genius that is Weird AL
A really funny guy. Still I've heard he can be rude to stewardesses... He seems good to other entertainers though and has great music.
One question I would have ask Weird Al is, "How ecstatic were you to have your song 'Dare to be Stupid' as part of the soundtrack for the '89 Transformers movie?" Excellent interview Craig and Steve.
I Love Weird Al and if I were A Kid I So put his book on my b-day wish list!!!!!!! I also would Love To See Him Live !!!!!! My question for him would be What Made You Want To Write Pareides To Hit Songs??????
THAT would be EPIC!
I fucking love Weird Al. So jealous you got to meet him. I bet 10 year old Craig was freaking out when talking to him.
my question i would ask is do u have ADHD
I'm a little bummed that we never got a Rock Band: Weird Al...
I love that use used "Close But No Cigar" as your instrumental. That's my all time favorite Weird Al song.
Great stuff guys! I have been a big fan of Al's since the first time I saw the video for Eat It on MTV. He is so funny, humble and genuine. And he puts on the best live show around! I can't wait for more coverage of the UHF screening and telethon!
Very nice. His closing statement was gold.
