A pretty solid parody (the video must be very new), but the "I'm white" during the chorus gets really annoying.

I'd say it's debatable if this is better than Al's WYL, though if you consider the theme/topic of the narrator embracing his whiteness then this parody does not even hold a candle to White & Nerdy.

It's hard enough explaining my White and Nerdy hoodie to people in the UK who seem to think its some white supremacist slogan. Ah the joys of "multiculturalism" NOT.
That parody would be one step too far I think, certainly in the UK

At least that's what the people who made the parody are telling us. :rolleyes:

I dunno, the red light "joke" may reflect a truth that is not funny in the slightest.
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

It was alright. The same lyrics are repeated too much though. In a song parody, it's a good idea to never repeat jokes.

I couldn't bring myself to listen to it. The guy has actually argues with me when I make comments on his stuff. I said something about his trashing of Weird Al being bad (it was a comment on another video of his, which was somewhat disturbing), and he retaliated quite childishly.

I looked at the lyrics, I can't say that they were funny to me, and looking at the repetitiveness in the lyrics really turned me off.

Since Al wrote a song about the recession, I thought some of you might enjoy this:

Google search for the words "whatever you like" brings up:

The real version isn't even second. It's listed third, after the Obama-inspired parody... :sly:
