“Weird Al” Yankovic – “Smells Like Nirvana”

He’s baaaaack!

It wasn’t until this week, when Weird Al Yankovic started his one-video-a-day-for-eight-days campaign that it was obvious how much he was missed.

Al’s silly yet clever humour hasn’t waned over the years, and his parodies of “Happy”, “Fancy”, “Royals” and “Blurred Lines” prove that he’s still very up on his popular culture.

So of course, I had to revisit every Weird Al video ever made (yeah, it’s been a pretty productive week). With gems like “Eat It” and “Like a Surgeon”, choosing a favourite was next to impossible. “Smells Like Nirvana” is certainly one of his best; the attention to detail alone is worth the watch.

Oh, and for those of you who enjoy Al’s polkas, a talented YouTuber created this video for the medley “Now That’s What I Call Polka” from the new album Mandatory Fun.
