One of the great post-modern musical comedians is Alfred Yankovic. Over the course of the last thirty years he has gone from a scrawny little geek with an accordion and glasses, to a Grammy winning international star. This collection is actually something that I'd recommend you purchase if you see it at your local S-Mart, and you probably will.

Weird Al knows popular music inside an out. He can literally fill the shoes and socks of any artist you name. His impersonations of Micheal Jackson, James Brown, Madonna, Kurt Cobain and several others are actually quite brilliant, and if you thought the songs were great as parodies, wait till you see them as music videos, full of visual gags, bathroom humour, and hilarious absurdities. It is something that kids (of a certain age) and Adults can enjoy alike. In fact, were it not for some occasionally mature humour, I would say this is a family watch. It is pretty darn close. Bonus features include snips from the Weird Al show, and his first television appearance with Tom Snyder.
