WEIRD: The Al Yankovic Story

"When my last movie UHF came out in 1989, I made a solemn vow to my fans that I would release a major motion picture every 33 years, like clockwork. I'm very happy to say we're on schedule," Yankovic said in a statement. "And I am absolutely thrilled that Daniel Radcliffe will be portraying me in the film. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is the role future generations will remember him for."
"Then you had Muppets and Hispanics and William Shatner."

Glad Al's writing it, should be fun to see Radcliffe in costume. Can't wait! Wonder if it'll be anything like the original Funny or Die trailer.

I’m shocked that there aren’t more posts about this.

Do you think the movie will depict Al as an alcoholic like in the original fake trailer? There is the shot in the teaser of him swigging booze and then spitting it, but that’s no indication and also seems like something Al might have done in a concert at some point.

Do you think the movie will have new original songs by Al? A UHF type ending credits song?

Do you hope the movie is more Al biopic or more FOD trailer?

A good shot of Steve Jay and Bermuda. During the Like a Surgeon number, you can see someone in a cone bra

This shot immediately follows the shot of Al from behind without a shirt on. But here, he is clearly wearing a shirt

High five with what looks like an older man with gray hair. Also, first time you really notice that movie Al is like 5’2”

Band opening what could be a record

Band playing at a different venue than before. Second time you notice that movie Al is short :D

Throwing what looks like a tape or CD at someone at the record company. Could this be Polka Party?

The only drinking shot. Doesn’t really imply that Al is an alcoholic

What could this be from?

Dancing in front of Mary Yankovic. Could this be from when Al was going to Cal Poly?

Self explanatory

This shot has me the most intrigued. What is going on here? Also wearing the same shirt as the record label scene

I’m guessing from when Al first recorded Another One Rides the Bus

Only other shot that hints at the FOD trailer featuring Madonna. The heavy door is definitely an Al joke
