Fat is just awesome. And, as many have already said, this is one of his best music videos, from a parody standpoint. Al may not have made up the fat jokes, but his ability to fit common fat jokes into the melody of Michael Jackson's Bad, makes them all the better. 5 out of 5!

I thought that "more chins than China town" pun was made up by Al, then I heard a similar one in another song ("more chins than Chinese phonebook") and thought "it's "Fat" refernce, how cool!", but then I googled it and it turns out it's an old and widespread joke...
:imstupid:
I had a similar situation with "Wanna B Ur Lovr" pick up lines, where I wrongly assumed they're all created by Al.

I thought Al invented it too for a long time, when I was a kid, I figured it did come out in the 80's, he probably came up with it. Nooope, people have been making fun of fat people for a long time.

If those older people are so funny, why didn't they thinking of setting their jokes to Michael Jackson's "Bad"?????? :good:

Truthfully they aren't very funny, whereas they are also not pure genius and talent like Al. It appears that way anyway.

Al just tweeted the original concept art for the "Fat" outfit from the music video.
