Trailer for "Weird: The Al Yankovic Story"

03.23.2010

Someone should make this.

Why remake something when we could have Aaron Paul (BREAKING BAD) play Weird Al Yankovic.

Apparently Weird Al had this whole other life we weren't aware of. He had a rocky relationship with Madonna (Olivia Wilde), his parents (Gary Cole and Mary Steenburgen) were ashamed, and he battled alcoholism. You know what else? Patton Oswalt would make a perfect Dr. Demento.

Watch the video below to see the beautiful life story of America's favorite song parody writer.

That was the first funny thing on Funny or Die.

I love that the real Weird Al is the record exec. I did not honestly expect Olivia Wilde in that, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO MARRY A PRINCE?

This trailer is awesome, and, yes, his live performances are something that everybody should see at least once.

It's not right to call a person "weird" just becuase they're different. He's "special".

He's not dead yet.

You can't make his biopic until he carks it.

This was amazing. Would love to see this become a real movie. By the way Olivia Wilde is beautiful.

"Eat it"

Would be a great idea to make it happen. He was SOOOOO relevant when MTV actually played MUSIC videos.

There's no way they could make a movie that could live up the the awesomeness of that trailer.

Weird Al is a genius. PERIOD. I've seen him twice live and laughed my ass off the whole time. The 2nd time I saw him was actually the very next day after his parents died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Kudos to him for still putting on an awesome show in no doubt a shitty time.

Thank you Walter.

I always do that. For some reason when that last name comes up I start to think of Oswald Cobblepot. Very strange and unrelated obviously.

Olivia Wilde as Madonna crying and vouging! Love it!

They really should make this. It could be a sequel (in spirit) to Walk Hard (which is amazing)

How come funny or die's fake trailers are better than most of the real trailers that come out. They need to make this and Gobstopper.
