On Dutch radio Veronica last Monday, there was a new item in a show, called 'First World Problems', where listeners could submit their first world problem. And the tune (5 seconds probably) was .. First World Problems ! And you have to know, Al is relatively unknown here, apart from his decades old hits 'Eat it' and 'Like a surgeon'. So this was quite a surprise.
I submitted, in dutch, 'my house is so big, I can't get wifi in the kitchen', but wasn't picked out. ;)

After a few months of listening to Mandatory Fun, this has really emerged as my favorite song on the CD.

Funny song and funny video. Al's take on the 1st world is spot on. It probably is my favorite original on MF.

I guess this reduces the chances of Al buying something he didn't really need to qualify for free shipping on amazon

The video always makes me wonder why Al was in front of seemingly Japanese vending machines.
Well, I was not 100% sure if they were truly Japanese(or mock ups?) until today, but I just came across a vending machine with the same promotional image as the ones in the video.

So I can confirm they were indeed Japanese vending machines.

FYI, these machines do take 1000 yen bills, but you can't use 5000 yen and 10000 yen bills. Well, certainly they do not take American bills...
