I don't know that DiCola approached Al directly, it was more likely that the label (Scotti Bros at that time) was asked to use the song, and of course they said yes.

I'm pretty sure Al knew Drew prior to the Pentiums video - he appeared on CBS' the Weird Al Show in 1997, two years before Pentiums was recorded.
