Even more videos by Al, and this time... there're specials!
27 October 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Since Al hadn't made the last of his videos by '96, it made sense to release this, an updated compilation music video DVD, and this time, they put some special features on, as well. Two of these are more things you can watch... a live performance of Another One Rides The Bus on something called The Tomorrow Show, from 1981, where Al has the music side(in addition to himself on the accordion) helped by his partner, Jon Schwartz playing, among other things, a piece of luggage(it'll make sense when you see it... no, seriously, it will), and some select clips of The Weird Al Show(which are amusing and very "Al"), including the intro(which is really good). In total, these come to about eight minutes, bringing the full running time of this DVD up to one hour and about 33 minutes. Also featured is a photo gallery with production stills of the various videos. Lastly, there are subtitles for all of the viewable material(lyrics whenever something is sung), and while these may not get everything right(I can't for sure tell if they do or not), they're good to have and a great help for following the songs(and hey, if you don't like them, they can be turned off, ah, the wonder of the medium of DVD). Of course, there are also the three new videos from the master of absurd comedy and parody-making; Bob, which will have you marveled at how many palindromes Al could find and make work(to spoof the incomprehensible singing of Bob Dylan), It's All About The Pentiums, Baby(featuring Drew Carey, no less, presumably due to being connected to sitting in a cubicle), which is a rather skillful re-writing of It's All About The *Benjamins*, Baby, to make P. Diddy's song be about computers rather than making money, and finally, The Saga Begins, which retells the story of Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace, in a fairly straight-forward manner. The flow of the videos isn't bad. The menus are set up well, and it's easy to find your way around, though the video selection could perhaps be better, it's too easy get lost in. All in all, definitely worth owning for any fan of Weird Al. If it's this or 'Weird Al Yankovic: The Videos, for the same price, I'd advise you to choose this. I recommend this to any fan of Weird Al Yankovic and/or parody songs/videos. 8/10
