So much of contemporary pop music screams out to be spoofed. It’s probably good that ‘80s parodist Weird Al Yankovic is back at work.
The man who made a career out of parodying the music of artists from the early video era, like Michael Jackson and Coolio, has his first TV special since 1999 coming up this weekend on Comedy Central: “Weird Al” Yankovic Live! – The Alpocalypse Tour.
The channel has released a wild animated sample, “Polka Face” (see video below). Weird Al, backed by what looks like the Abominable Snowmen, does a brisk medley of polka versions of hits by Lady Gaga, Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry, Jamie Foxx, Justin Bieber, Kei$ha and others.
Woo, that accordion is smoking!
