I actually think that there's a good chance of another live-action video before the tour starts up. Maybe not one with a big budget, though.

I'm not sure how true this is (if at all), but I was poking around YouTube last night and someone posted their "Canadian Idiot" contest submission by explaining that MuchMusic had cancelled the contest. There doesn't seem to be any mention of this on the network's web site, but they do say in the rules that they reserve the right to end it at any time.

So we unfortunately may never see the winning entries, but who knows for sure what's going on over there anymore.

Here's a well-done video of Canadian Idiot set to clips from Dudley Do-Right
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

It was mentioned that "Canadian Idiot" was released as a promo single in Australia. Does anybody know if there was any interesting cover art for it or anything.

Nope, it was just the wide shot of the SOL cover image....

Unpopular opinion alert-this is one of my least favorite Al songs. It's okay, but I've seen this overused to death in AMVs so the novelty dies down. But that's just my personal opinion.
