The comedy wizards at FunnyOrDie have put together a nice little parody of the music biopic with a fake trailer for Weird: The Weird Al Yankovic Story. Yes, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story is a full-length feature that tears apart the genre (and one that people should really see if they haven’t already), but this is good too. You’ve got Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Weird Al plus Olivia Wilde (House), Gary Cole (Office Space), Mary Steenburgen (Step Brothers), Paul Scheer (Human Giant), with Patton Oswalt (Big Fan) as Dr. Demento and Weird Al himself as a callous music executive.
It’s good for a chuckle, and you can check it out after the jump. I’ve also included Weird Al’s music video for “The Saga Begins”, his parody of Don McLean’s “American Pie” but about Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Meanace.
