Weird Al’s “Lame Claim To Fame” Mocks Our Weak Celeb Stories
How many degrees from Kevin Bacon are you?
The 7th video off Weird Al’s new album Mandatory Fun knows we love to brag about lame celeb encounters, and just totally makes fun of us for it. Keep your eyes peeled, because “Lame Claim to Fame” is full of references to Weird Al’s past videos (My Bologna! Jurassic Park! Like A Surgeon! UHF!), and bonus points if you catch all the Dr. Demento references and appearances! (Demento gave Al his first job, you know).
And, okay, full disclosure: one time I was at Disney World and Johnny Depp was totally staying the same hotel.
- “Word Crimes” makes it okay to hum to the tune of “Blurred Lines”
- The cameos in “Tacky” totally make it
- Want a version of Lorde’s “Royals” but about conspiracy theorists?
