I had forgotten how Michael Jackson MADE Weird Al. If Michael Jackson hadn’t gotten to be such a huge pop star — in a way I’m not sure anyone growing up in the 21st Century will understand – – than Weird Al might not have broken as big as he did in parodying two of Jackson’s hit songs: Beat It and Bad.
Both songs from Al are pretty funny actually although fully appreciating the original is probably necessary to really laugh at the parody.
Brothers from another mother? Weird Al in a fat suit and Eddie Murphy in a fat suit for The Nutty Professor.
