Behind the scenes of a Weird Al video - VIDEO
Maybe it's just because I'm older, but when I see Weird Al Yankovic now it seems he lets the facade drop a little more than usual and isn't so bent on being "on" all the time. Of course, as a youngster that's why I was so drawn to him, because he didn't seem like someone who was acting weird, he seemed like someone who was actually like that all the time. While I haven't bought a Weird Al album in over a decade, I still gotta give props to the man for sticking around and acting as a kind of needle that deflates the balloon of pop cultural excess. I may not listen to him as much anymore, but I think music needs someone like Weird Al to keep everyone from getting too full of themselves.
After the jump you can watch a behind-the-scenes look at Yankovic's video for "White and Nerdy."
