So did I! It took me a few viewings to realize that it was actually Drew Carey.

The backing vocals at the beginning remind me of a baby because they're really high for a man..

Was watching WrestleMania XXIX and there's a performance by P Diddy or whatever he goes by these days, not bad but when they did the original for this I noticed there's like no guitar riff in it, where as in Al's Jim added some killer riffs, and Steve added a prime bass line. Also his lyrics were so lame, it was just terrible, though I am just used to the absolutely amazingly well done Al parody which as we know is better in every single WAY. Not bashing Diddy of course, not a huge fan of rap but I find him funny and what not, just shocked at how wicked Al and the guys are at turning a mediocre song into a work of pure genius. Never ceases to amaze me time and time again.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

That what I thought at first, too, but it turns out there is a rock remix of the song (warning for explicit lyrics), and that's the version Al used.
Love and peace.

It's All About the Pentiums is probably one of my all time favorite songs by him and it's from RWS which is my all time favorite album. Every aspect of the video is amazing except what gets me every time is that when you see all six dancers you can tell that they're slightly off sync with each other. If I'm right, I read somewhere that they got to the set late and didn't really have enough time to rehearse but even if they didn't have enough time they still did really well
