Trivia

A book version of this video was published, titled "The Authorized Al". It followed the script for the most part, but included many extra stills that were either cut from the video, or only glimpsed briefly (e.g. the "Burgeropolis" architectural concept). It also had an appendix with the lyrics of every song on Al's three albums (at that time). See more »

Crazy Credits

Where it gives the info regarding Weird Al's management, it says in parentheses, "IN CASE YOU CAN'T REACH BARRY COHEN" before giving the name of his true manager, Jay Levey. Barry Cohen was a fictional character based on Levey. See more »

Funny!
14 May 1999 | by (WV) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie for all Weird Al fans! Some of the funniest parts happen when Al is asking Michael Jackson for permission to do "Eat it." It also has videos to "I Love Rocky Road", "One More Minute" and "Dare To Be Stupid."
