Great job, Internet: Weird: The Weird Al Yankovic Story

We sit in front of our computers most of the day, connected to our friends and co-workers by the series of pipes, strings, and nimbostratus zackets called the Internet. Many times per day, things flash before our eyes—videos, photos, songs, sites—that are funny or strange enough to warrant sharing with other people. We salute them with a hearty "Great job, Internet!"

You know what musician is in dire need of the Oscar-Bait Biopic treatment? “Weird Al” Yankovic. I mean, just how did he get so weird? The world may never know… unless this Funny Or Die trailer becomes a reality—and if it does, you can bet we’ll be in line faster than you can say “My Bologna.” Keep an eye out for a Yankovic cameo among the star-studded cast (Aaron Paul! Patton Oswalt! Mary Steenburgen?). Also: a tiny Hawaiian shirt.
