HOW TO PLAY:

The short version: If you all know how to play the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, then simply apply those rules to a celebrity and "Weird Al" Yankovic instead of Kevin Bacon.

The slightly longer, but still quite short version: One person will name a celebrity. It's up to you to link that celebrity to Weird Al in six steps or less. Links can be TV/movie/video appearances, parodied/polka'd artists, etc.

For example, let's try Bono. Your post would look like this:


Bono sang a duet with
Frank Sinatra, who turned down an offer to do a duet of "One More Minute" with
Weird Al.

INSERT NAME OF NEXT CELEBRITY HERE



Got it? Ok then, someone can start off with...Bill Clinton.

A cartoon Bill Clinton played the Sax (and was sung about) in the Animaniacs' opening theme song. Animaniacs was produced by Steven Spielberg, who showed up in clay form in Al's Jurrasic Park Video (he also directed Jurrasic Park, the movie Al's song was about).

Al performed on a Comic Relief special back in the 80s. Robin Williams was on of the hosts -- along with Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg.

That was John Williams that wrote the music for Star Wars..not Robin.
