I think it's a bit unfair to compare the "Lousy Haircut" video clip with "Living in the Fridge's."

"Haircut" was essentially a quick visual gag set to music, whereas "Fridge" was already a full-blown song that could very well have had its own four-minute video in 1993 but didn't. I don't know what the point is, but to me it seems almost like comparing the live performance of "Wanna B Ur Lovr" with one of the medley-only parodies. They're very different animals.

I do like the "Haircut" clip, even though most likely a full-length version of that would probably get old real fast, while I do wish there was a whole video for "Fridge."

You and me both. But probably for very different reasons. Mine involve spandex. :sly:

It's one joke, unfortunatly...but it could've been really funny had it been a longer visual gag. Still, I'd love to have this one on cd...Hey, it's longer than Harvey!
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?

There is nothing scary about Al in Spandex. :stern:

Unless, of course, you're concerned about the decimation of the wild Spandex herds of North America. :o
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

No, if I remember correctly, in spite of the similarity in names (it's kind of like American Buffalo-- which should be bison-- and Water Buffalo), the Australian Spandexian is actually a different species, more closely related to the Nauga.

The North American Spandex is in the Ibex family.

Oh, sorry, my mistake.

Spandexians -- such amazing animals... You know, they're unique in that they're more valuable to medical science alive than dead: their tight hides allow scientists to actually see impressions of internal organs in action, which is far more impressive the sorts of dead, exposed viscera you see in dissected animals.
