This is the REAL polka:

Spoiler:
Wrecking Ball
Pumped up kicks
Best song ever
Gangnam style
Call me maybe
Scream and shout
Somebody that I used to know
Timber
Sexy and I know it
Thrift shop
Get lucky

And the song that starts the polka off is
Spoiler:
Too Fat Polka
Let me be your stripper.

Just got my disc in the mail today
Spoiler:
Two Band Pictures, as well as two new pictures of Al not previously released. One with his outfit from the front cover, but his pants fell down, and one of him with what I am guessing is a leaf blower blowing into his face (really creepy). The Band Pictures are amazing. I will try scanning them and posting them on here


EDIT: Here are the links to the photos (Note: When scanned, there is a huge crease down the center with staples and stuff, but I tried to Photoshop it out as best as possible so these can be used for facebook cover photos!!! The first one will make an especially great cover photo :D

Was reading through the booklet that comes with the CD, and in the Thank You sections, I believe there are some hints to who is directing or producing music videos.
Spoiler:
Maker Studios, MC Lars, Jarret Heather, Jonathan Coulton, Liam Lynch, Brian Wisniewski, TruScribe, College Humor, Spencer Griffin, Jon Wolf, Funny or Die, Nerdist, and also lists people appearing in Tacky, followed by Emo Phillips, BJ Novak, Jennifer Chan, Brent Smith, Ryan Anderson

Don't know if ALL of these people listed are involved, but they are all featured in the section relating to music videos.

I'd post this in the Videos thread but it's locked for some reason - though, I guess this is kind of an update. According to the Video Facts page under the Archive section on the mothership, Al directed videos for Tacky, Foil, Handy, and Sports Song!

http://www.weirdal.com/videtc.htm

Now we already pretty much knew Handy and Sports Song were getting live-action videos, but now we know the video for Foil is live action as well! And that should be up tomorrow :D
I'm thinking Handy is the 'big-budget' video, so-to-speak. But the one for Tacky was very very good, albeit simple - so I'm really looking forward to all the others!

Also of interest on that page is that Dr. Demento guest stars in the Lame Claim to Fame vid!

Not that any of us really had any doubts, but the "Mandatory Tour" was just pretty much confirmed by Al to take place in 2015:
