Weird Al Finds The Force

This is turning into a whole week of Weird Al posts I guess.  There’s a whole string of parodies Al did in the nineties where he took a popular song and then made fun not just the song and the band but a whole bunch of other pop culture stuff.  More of a blender, shotgun approach.

Smells Like Nirvana parodies the ur grunge song but also the whole grunge movement.

Bedrock Anthem parodies a couple of Red Hot Chili Pepper songs in the course of its affection for the television show The Flintstones.

Gump parodies not only the Presidents of the United States’ hit song Lump but the movie Forrest Gump which is already a maelstrom of pop culture Zeliging.

The Saga Begins saddles up Don McLean’s American Pie for a roll through the first Star Wars prequel.

UPDATE: Really if you’re posting about Weird Al and Star Wars I think you’re legally required to mention Yoda. Hopefully this update will keep me out of nerd jail.
